Biography

Davidson Hamer, MD, FACP, FIDSA, is a Professor of International Health and Medicine at the Boston University School of Public Health and School of Medicine, and Adjunct Professor of Nutrition at the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. Dr. Hamer is a board-certified specialist in infectious diseases, with a particular interest in tropical infectious diseases, and has twenty years of field experience in neonatal and child survival research including studies of micronutrient interventions, maternal and neonatal health, malaria, pneumonia, and diarrheal diseases.  During the last 15+ years, he has supervised and provided technical support to more than 50 studies in developing countries that evaluated interventions for improving neonatal survival, treatment and prevention of malaria, HIV/AIDS, micronutrient deficiencies, diarrheal disease, and pneumonia. He currently has active projects in Zambia, Tanzania, and Ecuador. Major current projects include a large neonatal survival study, community-based interventions to reduce neonatal and under-5 child morbidity from common diseases, the role of specific micronutrients in reducing the burden of disease due to malaria in pregnancy, and an evaluation of the association of vitamin D deficiency with pneumonia in Ecuadorian children. Dr. Hamer received a MD from the University of Vermont College of Medicine and a BA in biology and French from Amherst College. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
