Daniel Aridgides M.D., Ph.D.
Daniel Aridgides completed his MD/PhD training at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA in 2015 where he studied interactions between the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi and host cardiomyocytes in vitro and using mouse models. He then came to Dartmouth-Hitchcock for his Internal Medicine Residency, subsequently entering the Pulmonary/Critical Care Research Pathway and starting a post-doc in the lab of Dr. Alix Ashare. He applied his previous experience studying host-pathogen interactions to investigating lung macrophages infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. His goal is to further the understanding of chronic P. aeruginosa lung infections in CF in order to better inform therapy for those who are colonized.
