Larry Schlesinger, MD, has been named chair of the new Department of Microbial Infection and Immunity, pending review and approval by the OSU Board of Trustees. His promotion builds on a well-established list of accomplishments, including his recent service as director of the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Internal Medicine. Schlesinger also serves as the founding director of the OSU Center for Microbial Interface Biology, the interdisciplinary campus-wide program focusing on infectious diseases.
 
He is an internationally recognized scientist in the pathogenesis of tuberculosis and diseases due to intracellular pathogens. He has published more than 100 papers, book chapters and reviews and has been continuously funded by the NIH and other agencies for more than 20 years. He has been a member or chair of several NIH study sections and has served on advisory boards for a number of private and federal agencies. Schlesinger is a Fellow of the AAAS and the American Academy of Microbiology, and was recently named a 2011 Ohio State University Distinguished Scholar.
