Overview: Clinical Research in Infectious Diseases

Dr. Azimi’s areas of interest include clinical and laboratory investigation of antimicrobial agents in childhood infections, and the safety and efficacy of childhood vaccines. Additional research projects have focused on the epidemiology and determination of protective levels of maternal antibody against early-onset neonatal Group B streptococcal disease. Another study was the surveillance of rotavirus disease in the inpatient population of Children’s Hospital Oakland, which was followed by a two-year surveillance study of this disease in the Emergency Department.  In 2008-2009, Dr. Azimi had an NICHD grant to evaluate the relationship between maternal GBS carriage and neonatal respiratory distress. Analysis of this study is pending. In 2010 she was the recipient of a CDC grant to evaluate rotavirus vaccine efficacy in Alameda County, CA.
