▶ Careers Unfiltered S2: Industry Miniseries – Dr. Jim Musser and Dr. Camille Leugers
For our latest Industry Miniseries conversation, we had the pleasure of speaking with two University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry graduates and life-partners, Dr. Jim Musser ’88MD, ’88M (PhD) and Dr. Camille Leugers ’88M (MD),’91M (Res). As the Chair of the Department of Pathology and Genomic Medicine and the Director of the Center for Molecular and Translational Human Infectious Diseases Research at Houston Methodist Hospital, Dr. Musser’s work has been consumed by the recent pandemic of COVID-19. In an effort to treat COVID-19 patients, the team at Houston Methodist was the first in the nation to test an experimental blood transfusion therapy. Dr. Camille Leugers has also seen first-hand the impacts of COVID-19 as a family physician and faculty member of the brand new University of Houston College of Medicine which will welcome their first class in July of 2020. Tune in as they reminisce about their time at URMC, discuss how this recent pandemic has impacted the medical field and what things may look like going forward, and advice that they have for students.
