Sameer S. Kadri, MD, MS


Dr. Sameer S. Kadri is currently a staff clinician and head of the Clinical Epidemiology Section in the Clinical Center's Critical Care Medicine Department. Dr. Kadri earned his degree in Medicine from the Seth G. S. Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, India. He went on to complete internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical Center and obtained a Masters degree in Clinical Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Following his fellowship training in Critical Care Medicine at the NIH and in Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kadri was appointed to Staff Clinician in the Critical Care Medicine Department at the NIH in 2014.

His primary research interest lies in infections in the critically ill. He leverages large datasets for epidemiologic investigations on antimicrobial resistance, sepsis, procalcitonin use, smoke inhalation acute lung injury and the role of IVIG in necrotizing fasciitis and granulocyte transfusions in invasive mycoses. He founded and leads the NIH Antimicrobial Resistance Outcomes Research (ARSO) Initiative, a collaborative between the NIH Clinical Center, Intramural NIAID investigators, the CDC and Harvard Medical School. He has spearheaded investigations that underscore the benefits of dually training in critical care medicine and infectious diseases.
