M3 Executive Search is proud to assist the Drexel University College of Medicine with their national search for a board-certified infectious disease physician scientist who will serve as the Clinical Research Unit Director (CRU Director) in the Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine and the Partnership Comprehensive Care Practice (Partnership) .

Drexel University College of Medicine has a substantial portfolio of research in HIV, virology, vaccinology, and infectious and inflammatory diseases more broadly.

These projects are complemented by extramural programs for community engagement and public health with our clinic population. The College also received highly competitive funding for basic, translational, clinical and population research for COVID-19. Drexel COM is a consortium member of the National Cancer Institute- designated Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University and engaged actively in studies of the oncogenic properties of HIV and other viruses.
