Dr. Jeffrey R. Strich is a Staff Clinician in the Critical Care Medicine Department at the NIH Clinical Center.


Dr. Strich received his undergraduate degree from the University of Connecticut in Molecular and Cell Biology, his degree in Medicine from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, and his Masters in Health Services in Clinical Research from the Duke University School of Medicine. He completed residency training in Internal Medicine at Georgetown University Hospital and then completed a combined fellowship in Critical Care Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health.

His primary research interests are epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of highly resistant gram-negative infections and bacterial sepsis in critically ill patients. As part of the NIH Antimicrobial Resistance Outcomes Research Initiative (NIH–ARORI) he has used large datasets to track the uptake and utilization of novel gram-negative antibiotics and estimate the market size for future novel gram-negative antibiotics. He has developed liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry-based assays for the detection or antibiotic resistance proteins including the OXA-48 family, NDM, and MCR-1. Currently, he is developing a non-human primate model of Klebsiella pneumoniae septic shock with the goal of studying the host-pathogen interaction and novel treatments for antibiotic resistant gram-negative infections. Additionally, he has an interest in the clinical and immunological characterization and treatment of emerging pathogens including SARS-CoV-2.

Dr. Strich is a Medical Officer in the United States Public Health Services Commissioned Corps. Prior to pursuing his degree in Medicine he served as a Special Assistant in the Office of the Surgeon General.

Dr. Strich is a member of the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) where he serves as the IDSA Sepsis Task Force Executive Secretary and is a member of the Society of Critical Care Medicine. He holds an appointment as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.
