Dr. Michael Rubin is Section Chief of Epidemiology at VA Salt Lake City Health Care System and a research investigator for the Salt Lake VA Informatics, Decision Enhancement, and Surveillance (IDEAS) Center. He is interested primarily in bedside-to-community translational research encompassing the domains of medical informatics, decision-support systems, and computer simulation modeling, particularly as these relate to infectious diseases and infection control surveillance. He has led research teams as both Principal Investigator and co-investigator on numerous projects focusing on preventable healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and infections with multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO), including Clostridium difficile and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Relevant recent and ongoing projects include longitudinal epidemiologic analyses of MDRO infection rates, hospital-based interventions to reduce device-associated infections, and the development of state-of-the-art computer simulation models to test novel HAI intervention strategies and to analyze their impact. These and other projects have provided the experience participating on, assembling, and leading highly cohesive and collaborative interdisciplinary teams of investigators that engage in transformative research at the highest level of efficacy and excellence.
