Dr. Jesse Papenburg - IDIGH Program, [email protected]
Dr. Papenburg’s research focuses on the epidemiology, surveillance and diagnosis of severe viral respiratory infections among children in Québec and Canada.
- Resource utilization in pediatric acute viral infections;
- Urgent air transfers of children in Canadian Northern communities to tertiary care centres for lower respiratory tract infection;
- Diagnostics and biomarkers to distinguish viral and bacterial acute respiratory infections;
- Diagnostic accuracy of point-of-care tests for influenza and RSV;
- Prevention strategies for viral respiratory infections, including RSV and influenza;
- Clinical impact of molecular diagnostics for respiratory viruses and CNS pathogens;
