Dr. Benjamin Pinsky's research interests include the development and application of molecular assays for the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases. As the Medical Director of the Clinical Virology Laboratory for Stanford Health Care and the Stanford Children’s Health, as well as the Medical Co-Director for Point of Care Testing, and the Medical Director of Esoteric (Send-out) testing, 60% of Dr. Pinsky's time is spent attending to clinical responsibilities. Teaching medical students, residents, and fellows, as well as administrative tasks, including serving on the Integrated Pediatric Infectious Disease Committee and chairing the Clinical Laboratory Utilization Committee, account for 20%. The remaining 20% is dedicated to scholarly activities, focusing on the design of novel infectious disease diagnostics and investigation of the clinical relevance of molecular infectious disease testing.
