Dr. Florin’s research program aims to improve the diagnosis, management and outcomes of children with common, serious infections, with a current focus on lower respiratory tract infections. He is the principal investigator of Catalyzing Ambulatory Research in Pneumonia Etiology and Diagnostic Innovations in Emergency Medicine (CARPE DIEM), a prospective cohort study of children with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) with the overall objectives of using clinical and translational methodology to understand CAP pathophysiology, improve prediction of CAP severity, and enhance differentiation of CAP etiology. Current work centers on development of risk stratification tools and use of biomarkers to improve outcomes in children with pneumonia at the point-of-care. His work has also centered on resource utilization, variation in care, antimicrobial stewardship and use of clinical trials to improve treatments for respiratory tract infections in children.

Dr. Florin's clinical focus is on the care of acutely ill and injured children in the Emergency Department at Lurie Children's Hospital.
