About the Presenter:

Dr. Holland received his M.D. from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1983, where he stayed as a resident in internal medicine, assistant chief of service, and fellow in infectious diseases. He came to the National Institutes of Health in 1989 as a National Research Council fellow in the Laboratory of Molecular Microbiology, working on transcriptional regulation of HIV. In 1991, Dr. Holland joined the Laboratory of Host Defenses, shifting his research to the host side, with a focus on phagocyte defects and their associated infections. His work centered on the pathogenesis and management of chronic granulomatous disease and Job?s syndrome, as well as other congenital immune defects affecting phagocytes, including those predisposing to mycobacterial diseases. In 2004, he became Chief, Laboratory of Clinical Infectious Diseases (LCID) and is currently also Deputy Director for Intramural Clinical Research, NIH.

Over the course of his career Steve has won a number of awards and honors, including the NIH Distinguished Clinical Teacher Award, the Erwin Neter Award of the Association of Medical Laboratory Immunologists, the American College of Physicians Award for Science, and shared in four NIH Director?s Awards for discovery of organisms and diseases. He is past president of the International Immunocompromised Host Society and of the Clinical Immunology Society, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a NIH Distinguished Investigator.
