Research Interests

Dr. Florin is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He is Director of Research for the Division of Emergency Medicine at Lurie and Head of the Grainger Initiative for Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research. Dr. Florin is a nationally recognized expert in the field of respiratory infectious diseases in the acute care setting. His work has been funded by a K23 mentored career development award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the NIH, a KL2 mentored career development award through the University of Cincinnati Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training (CCTST) and a grant from the Gerber Foundation. He is a past recipient of the Academic Pediatric Association Young Investigator Award, in addition to research awards from the Sections of Emergency Medicine and Hospital Medicine of the American Academy of Pediatrics and mentorship awards from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. He serves on the Council of the Society of Pediatric Research.

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.
