CLS Presents Dr. Pappas, MD with a Dept Coin
COL Burpo presented Dr. Peter Pappas, MD with a department coin in appreciation of his hosting Department of Chemistry and Life Science (CLS) Cadet Jacob Keith '20 for a 3-week clinical experience at the University of Alabama in Birmingham (UAB) earlier this summer. Dr. Pappas is a Professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Tinsley Harrison Clinical Scholar, Department of Medicine at the University of Alabama in Birmingham and a world-renowned expert in clinical mycology.
His main areas of interest have included the development of new therapies for fungal infections and understanding the epidemiology of candidiasis, the endemic mycoses, and cryptococcosis. COL Burpo and the CLS faculty and staff continue to develop relationships beyond West Point to ensure meaningful experiences for our Cadets with world-class clinicians and scientists.
