George Sakoulas George Sakoulas, MD, earned his undergraduate degree in biology from Columbia University and his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. He subsequently completed his residency training in internal medicine, chief residency, and fellowship in infectious diseases at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. During his research fellowship years, he developed interests in Gram-positive bacterial infections in the laboratory of Robert C. Moellering, Jr. examining alterations in virulence in Staphylococcus aureus upon acquiring glycopeptides resistance.

In the Nizet laboratory, George's major interests are the pharmacodynamic interactions of the various classes of antistaphylococcal and antienterococcal antibiotics with each other and with innate host defense molecules such as cathelicidin and platelet-derived antmicrobial peptides.  He is an investigator in the NIH/NICHD-funded Research Program in Developmental Pharmacology.

George is also an active infectious diseases clinician evaluating patients on the inpatient consult service and in outpatient clinics based at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego.
