Dr. Danniel Zamora is an acting instructor of infectious diseases in the Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. Dr. Zamora is a recent graduate of the University of Washington Infectious Diseases Fellowship Training Program earlier this year. Prior to that, Dr. Zamora received his medical degree from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson, AZ in 2014, followed by internal medicine residency training at the University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) in Dallas, TX which he completed in 2017. Dr. Zamora is a research associate at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA and his research focus is on infections in the immunocompromised host and pathogen-specific immune responses following hematopoietic cell transplantation. Specifically, he has an interest in cytomegalovirus (CMV)-specific humoral and cellular reconstitution after hematopoietic cell transplantation. He is a member of the Boeckh Lab group and is a mentee to Dr. Michael Boeckh, a leading expert of infectious diseases and renowned researcher of viral infections following hematopoietic cell transplantation including CMV. Earlier this year, Dr. Zamora’s study examining CMV-specific neutralizing antibody responses in a historic, randomized, controlled trial of intravenous immunoglobulin for CMV prophylaxis after hematopoietic cell transplantation was published in the Infectious Diseases Society of America official publication, The Journal of Infectious Diseases. His findings have also been presented at multiple national conferences including the 2019 and 2020 Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Meetings of ASBMT and CIBMTR as well as IDWeek 2019.
