"It is very sad to see that a country that has struggled for so long against adversity has been struck again by a natural disaster. Much of the progress in improving the infrastructure in this region has been lost, leaving survivors at risk, again, for many infections and other health problems.”—Dr. Michael Libman

Dr. Michael Libman has expertise in many areas of infectious diseases and microbiology. His research involves infections acquired by travellers and immigrants.
