Dr. David Goldfarb

Clinical Associate Professor

Pathology and Laboratory Medicine

Faculty of Medicine, UBC

I completed medical school at Dalhousie University and Pediatrics, Pediatric Infectious Disease, and Medical Microbiology residencies at the University of Ottawa. Afterwards, I relocated with my family to Gaborone, Botswana joining that country’s newly established School of Medicine. Working on the pediatric wards there, I soon became “immersed” in diarrhoea research. Prior to coming to Vancouver I had worked as a member of the Division of Infectious Disease at McMaster Children’s Hospital. My main research interest is novel diagnostics for childhood infectious disease, particularly in resource-limited and remote settings.
