Infective Endocarditis
Prophylaxis of Endocarditis

Biography: In a faculty career spanning more than 30 years, Dr. Arnold Bayer has dedicated himself to deepening our understanding of infectious disease. He continues to study the ways in which the human body responds to infection and builds up resistance to antibiotics, with an ultimate goal of developing strategies for effectively fighting off pathogens.With funding from both NIH/NIAID and private sector pharmaceutical sources, Dr. Bayer is conducting research related to the mechanisms by which platelet peptides kill common blood stream pathogens, as well as to the study of the genetic mechanisms by which certain strains of bacteria develop resistance and cross-resistance to antibiotics.In addition to his numerous responsibilities within the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center community, Dr. Bayer plays an active role in the international medical and academic spheres. A co-author of well over 200 scientific papers, book chapters and major reviews and a frequent lecturer and presenter on topics concerning infectious disease, Dr. Bayer has served on national committees, including the National American Heart Associations Committee on Rheumatic Fever, Endocarditis & Kawasakis Disease; NIAIDs National Association for Research in Staphylococcus aureus (NARSA); and, the International Society on Cardiovascular Infectious Diseases (ISCVID). He is a charter committee member of the International Consortium for the Study of Infective Endocarditis (ICE) and he also serves as ongoing principal investigator and steering committee member for the Consortiums UCLA site.Dr. Bayer began his medical education on the East coast, earning his degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After completing an internship and junior residency program at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, also in Philadelphia, Dr. Bayer came to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center as a senior resident in Internal Medicine, and a Clinical-Research Fellow in infectious diseases. Immediately thereafter, he began post-doctoral research fellowship in infectious diseases at Wadsworth VA Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA, before joining the faculty at Harbor-UCLA and LA Biomed.
