Biography:

Pranita D. Tamma, M.D., M.H.S is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and the Director of the Pediatric Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. She believes that although antibiotics have saved countless lives, their use is not benign. Dr. Tamma focuses on optimizing the use of antibiotics to treat infections, while also limiting their unnecessary use and the harm they can cause when used inappropriately. She assists clinicians with the selection, route, dose, interval, and duration of antibiotics, developing guidelines to guide the appropriate and judicious use of antibiotics, and monitoring patient outcomes after implementation of these practices. She conducts research both in the pediatric and adult population. Her research focuses on clinical outcomes related to antibiotic administration strategies and the use of rapid diagnostic tools to improve antibiotic use. Dr. Tamma has a particular interest in exploring optimal therapy for infections caused by multidrug resistant Gram-negative organisms.
