Bio

Dr. Rubin has clinical expertise in infectious diseases and hospital epidemiology, with a specific focus on preventable infections acquired from interactions with the health care setting. In particular, he is interested in infections caused by organisms resistant to multiple antibiotics (or, "multidrug-resistant organisms"), such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile. Although he specializes in the treatment of these types of infections, he also provides expertise in preventing these infections through the promotion of various infection control measures, such as strict adherence to handwashing, early removal of invasive devices, consistent use of contact isolation practices, and appropriate use of antibiotics.

Academic Bio

Michael Rubin graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago as part of the combined M.D./Ph.D. program, finishing both in 1997. Following this, he completed both his residency in internal medicine (in 2000) and his fellowship in infectious diseases (in 2003) at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, where he then joined the faculty in the Divisions of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases, where he is now a Tenured Associate Professor of Medicine. He also joined the VA Salt Lake City Health Care System as Section Chief of Epidemiology and as a research investigator for the Salt Lake VA Informatics, Decision Enhancement, and Surveillance (IDEAS) Center. He is interested primarily in bedside-to-community translational research encompassing the domains of medical informatics, decision-support systems, and computer simulation modeling, particularly as these relate to infectious diseases and infection control surveillance. He has led research teams as both Principal Investigator and co-investigator on numerous projects focusing on preventable healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and infections with multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO), including Clostridium difficile and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Relevant recent and ongoing projects include longitudinal epidemiologic analyses of MDRO infection rates, hospital-based interventions to reduce device-associated infections, and the development of state-of-the-art computer simulation models to test novel HAI intervention strategies and to analyze their impact. These and other projects have provided the experience participating on, assembling, and leading highly cohesive and collaborative interdisciplinary teams of investigators that engage in transformative research at the highest level of efficacy and excellence.
