About the Moskowitz Lab
In July 2001, after completing a Howard Hughes Medical Institute-sponsored physician postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Samuel Miller at the University of Washington School of Medicine, Sam Moskowitz set up his own laboratory at Seattle Children’s Hospital, where he formed a collaborative relationship with Dr. Jane Burns focusing on biofilm susceptibility testing. In May 2003, the Moskowitz lab moved to the fourth floor of the Fialkow Pavillion (K Wing) within the University of Washington Health Sciences Center, and soon developed a collaborative relationship with Dr. Lalita Ramakrishnan focusing on zebrafish as a P. aeruginosa infection model.
In October 2006 the Moskowitz and Burns labs developed additional collaborative relationships with Drs. Matthew Parsek, Gail Anderson, and Paolo Vicini focusing on an in vitro pharmacokinetic model of antibiotic pharmacodynamic effects on P. aeruginosa biofilms. In May 2007, the Moskowitz lab received an NIH investigator-initiated research award (R01) to support its work on polymyxin resistance of P. aeruginosa, in collaboration with Dr. Lisa Saiman of Columbia University and Drs. Niels Høiby and Helle Krogh-Johansen of the University of Copenhagen.
In June 2009, the Moskowitz lab relocated from Seattle to its current location at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
