Abdur Husain, MD

Fellow, Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine UC San Diego Department of Medicine

Dr. Husain came to United States after completing medical school in Pakistan to join Emory University, Atlanta, as a research scholar in the Department of Pulmonary and Critical Care. He spent two years participating in various clinical research projects on ARDS and sepsis, subsequently developing a keen interest in sepsis biomarkers. He then went on to train as an internal medicine resident in Atlanta and was actively involved in the sepsis committee that looked at compliance with sepsis bundles. During his residency, he did an away elective rotation at University of Florida, where he worked closely with intervention pulmonology and was drawn towards advanced diagnostic modalities for lung cancer. He now continues to pursue his clinical and research interests in Pulmonary and Critical Care as a fellow at University of California San Diego.
