Bio

Dr. Blaschke completed her medical degree at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. She then completed her Pediatric Residency and a fellowship in Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Utah and Primary Children’s Hospital. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Division at the University of Utah.

Dr. Blaschke´s clinical interests include general infectious diseases, and serious bacterial infection including MRSA infection and antibiotic-resistant organisms. Dr. Blaschke´s research interests include the development of rapid diagnostic testing to improve the management of bacterial and viral infections in children and investigation bacterial factors that lead to severe invasive infection.

Academic Bio

Dr. Blaschke graduated from the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of California, San Diego where she received her medical degree and a Ph.D. in Biology. She trained in Pediatrics and Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Utah and Primary Children’s Medical Center. During her fellowship she trained at the University of Utah’s Associated Regional and University Pathologists (ARUP) Laboratories, studying the development of new diagnostic tests for infectious disease.

Dr. Blaschke joined the faculty of the University of Utah in 2006. In 2013 she became an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics’ Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases. She is a Member of the Society for Pediatric Research, the American Society for Microbiology the Infectious Disease Society of America and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She also serves as Program Director of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship training program.

Dr. Blaschke’s research interests involve the development of rapid diagnostic testing to improve the management of bacterial and viral infections in children, including the rapid identification of antibiotic-resistant pathogens and pathogens causing pneumonia. She has been the principal investigator or co-investigator on grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Dr. Blaschke is a reviewer for numerous journals. She has published more than 40 peer-reviewed scientific articles, textbook chapters, reviews and scientific abstracts.
