Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr. Long received his MD degree in 2007 from The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston TX, where he also earned a PhD in Experimental Pathology. While at UTMB, he was the recipient of a McLaughlin Fellowship for Immunity and Infectious Disease and a Sealy Center for Vaccine Development fellowship. After finishing his doctoral studies, Dr. Long completed a clinical pathology residency at Houston Methodist. He currently serves as a member of the Editorial Board for Archives of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Dr. Long joined Houston Methodist Hospital in 2011, and received his faculty appointment at the Weill Cornell Medical College in 2012. 

Research interests

Dr. Long’s research centers on functional genomics of multidrug-resistant bacterial strains to identify novel drug targets. He is currently focusing his work on MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and Klebsiella pneumoniae, both of which readily acquire resistance to several different types of antibiotics and are prevalent in the hospital setting.
