Amy Spallone, MD
“Hanging out in the General Biology lab when I was the lab assistant and with the faculty and staff in the Bio/Chem Department are my favorite memories from SUNY Corning Community College,” remembers Dr. Amy Spallone, who graduated from SUNY CCC in 2008.
"The Bio/Chem department became my academic family. I had all the support and mentorship I needed to reach for my goals. I even had a designated chair in the department because I was always there studying or working on papers! I am where I am in my professional and academic life because I started my journey at CCC," she adds.
Amy earned her Associate of Science Degree in Mathematics and Sciences in 2008 from SUNY Corning Community College, but she didn’t stop there.
After CCC, Amy went on to Cornell University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences in 2010. Then working at CCC as an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Biology/Chemistry from 2010 to 2011.
She went on to earn her Medical Doctorate (MD) from Albany Medical College in 2015 and did her Internal Medicine residency at Stony Brook University Hospital from 2015 to 2018.
Infectious Diseases Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine from 2018 to 2020 would follow and is now in the Infectious Diseases Advanced Research Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine.
Amy’s research interests include: Clinical outcomes of hematopoietic cell transplant, patients with respiratory viral infections, invasive fungal infections, emerging fungal pathogens, emerging infections in oncologic and transplant recipients, immunotherapy and infectious diseases. She has been published numerous times in journals and books.
Some of Dr. Spallone’s future plans include: Obtaining appointment as an academic infectious diseases specialist and continuing to pursue research as an independent, early career physician scientist.
Dr. Spallone live and works in Houston, Texas – but she got her start at SUNY Corning Community College, in Corning, New York.
