David Goldfarb is an Assistant Professor (Adjunct) in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Infectious Disease and an Associate Member of the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, at McMaster University.

Goldfarb’s current research focuses on novel diagnostics for pediatric infectious diseases. He is leading a team of collaborators from the University of Pennsylvania, University of Botswana and McMaster that plans to design an innovative, user- and patient-friendly sample collection method that will allow for point of care testing for gastroenteritis. Combined with more recent, highly sensitive detection techniques, this work could have immediate impact in much of the world where diarrheal disease remains deadly and for the large part undiagnosed.
