ABOUT THE RESEARCHER

OVERVIEW

Dr. Lise Nigrovic’s research focus has been in the approach to diagnosis and management of children with infectious emergencies. Her significant research contributions include the development and multi-center validation of a clinical prediction model to distinguish between bacterial and viral meningitis. Her current research is focused on the initial diagnosis and management of children with Lyme disease. She is the founding chair of the pediatric Lyme disease clinical research network, Pedi Lyme Net, with an associated pediatric biorepository. Previously she served for 15 years as the site principal investigator for the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Applied Research Network (PECARN) and immediate past current chair of the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Clinical Research Collaborative (PEM CRC).

BACKGROUND

Lise Nigrovic received her MD in Medicine from Harvard Medical School and her MPH in clinical effectiveness from the Harvard School of Public Health. She completed her residency, chief residency and clinical fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital and then joined the faculty in the Division of Emergency Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital. She now serves as the Director of the Institutional Centers for Clinical and Translational Research (ICCTR) Office of Investigator Outreach and the Boston Children’s Hospital Medical Research Office for Harvard Catalyst.
