Michael Shiloh, M.D., Ph.D., is an Associate Professor with tenure in the Departments of Internal Medicine and Microbiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center and a member of the Division of Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine. He holds the James P. Luby, M.D. Professorship in Infectious Diseases.
Dr. Shiloh earned a bachelor's degree with honors in chemistry from Pennsylvania State University in State College. He received his medical degree and his doctorate in immunology at Cornell University in New York. He then completed internal medicine residency training, a fellowship in infectious diseases, and a molecular medicine fellowship at the University of California San Francisco.
Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in internal medicine and in infectious diseases, Dr. Shiloh joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2011 as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2018.
At UT Southwestern, Dr. Shiloh is a member of the Biosafety Committee and the Medical Scientist Training Program Steering Committee. He's also a member of several professional societies, including the Infectious Disease Society of America, the American Society of Microbiology, the American Association of Immunologists, and the American Society of Clinical Investigation.
Dr. Shiloh's research interests include tuberculosis, immunology, and microbiology. In his laboratory, his long-term research goal is to discover the mechanisms by which Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) causes disease in humans. His findings have resulted in numerous peer-reviewed publications, invited lectures, reviews, and book chapters.
Outside of work, Dr. Shiloh enjoys hiking, running, playing soccer, traveling, and cooking.
