Richard N. Goldstein, PhD

Professor, Pediatrics

Richard Goldstein
670 Albany St Biosquare III


Richard Goldstein received his PhD in biophysical chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania. Shortly after he joined BUSM and Boston University School of Public Health as a professor of public health. He conducted extensive research with bacterial pathogens such as uropathogenic Eschericia coli that led to an appointment in the Division of adult Infectious Diseases in 1992. Several years later he was appointed Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases. He has received numerous honors and awards and has served on many scientific committees and advisory groups. Goldstein has several patents and has authored various papers since the start of his career.
