What began as endless battles with action figures is now an endless and inspiring crusade to prevent and fight disease. In this Lightning Talk, two brothers at UTSW Medical Center —one an Infectious Disease expert trained at NIH, the other a Johns Hopkins-trained Neuroimmunologist—are on separate but driven paths.

Meet Dr. David Greenberg who is focused on commercializing precision pathogen-specific antibiotics to help tackle the worldwide crisis of antibiotic resistance. And learn about Dr. Ben Greenberg’s efforts for the Department of Neurology in treating rare autoimmune disorders of the central nervous system.
