Biography

Elijah Paintsil, MD, is a pediatrician who treats children with serious infectious diseases, including HIV, Lyme disease and skin infections caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). “I chose my specialty because of my passion to find cures for infectious diseases,” he says.

In addition to caring for children, Dr. Paintsil works with HIV-infected mothers. He points out that the last transmission of HIV from mother to baby at Yale New Haven Hospital was in 1996. He is excited by research that is “getting closer and closer to one day eradicating HIV.”

Dr. Paintsil is an associate professor of pediatrics (infectious disease), of epidemiology (microbial diseases) and of pharmacology at Yale School of Medicine. He is also a researcher whose work has included the discovery of a protein that can be used to monitor patients who may experience side effects from HIV medications.
