About the Speakers:

  • Warren S. Joseph received his B.A. in biology from the University of Pennsylvania, and his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from the William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. He completed his residency program in podiatric medicine and surgery in 1984 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Philadelphia. Following his residency program, Warren did a one-year fellowship in infectious diseases at Hahnemann University School of Medicine. He is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics & Primary Podiatric Medicine.
  • Shmuel Shoham, M.D., has spent most of his nine years at Johns Hopkins diagnosing and caring for patients with infectious diseases, such as pneumonia. But when COVID-19 cases began to soar — with no cure in sight — the associate professor of medicine in the transplant and oncology infectious diseases program felt compelled to act. Building on previous research to treat influenza using antibodies from survivors’ blood, Shoham helped form a consortium of experts to launch clinical trials investigating COVID-19 survivor blood as a treatment.
