About Me

Talia Swartz, MD, PhD, is Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases and Medical Education. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease. Her clinical training is in Infectious Diseases with a specific interest in care for people with HIV and her basic science interest is in the biology that underlies chronic HIV infection and severe COVID-19. Her NIH-funded research laboratory investigates the signaling that mediates inflammatory signaling in response to infection and aims to develop novel treatment paradigms that reduce the morbidity and mortality of HIV-1 disease and COVID-19.

Dr. Swartz is Director of the MD-PhD Program and Senior Associate Dean for MD-PhD Education. She has been deeply committed to supporting the training of physician scientists through recruitment and support of diverse trainees who are navigating dual training in medicine and biomedical science. She is involved in innovative curricular development, outreach, and student support, both at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and through the AAMC GREAT Group MD/PhD Section Communications Committee where she has been developing resources to make physician scientist training available to a more diverse group of future trainees.
