At UT Southwestern he established the first formal Pediatric Infectious Disease fellowship program with Dr. Kenneth Haltalin and later Dr. George McCracken. He also went on to establish the National Pediatric Infectious Disease Seminar with Dr. McCracken and in 1982 they founded the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal for which they continue as Chief Editors. In 1975 Dr. Nelson produced the first edition of the Pocket Book of Pediatric Antimicrobial Therapy which has gone through 20 biennial editions and is now edited by Dr. John Bradley.

He attended medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina before completing his pediatric residency at Johns Hopkins. He then completed dual fellowships in pediatric infectious diseases and neonatal/perinatal medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, Texas. His research interests include antimicrobial stewardship and responsible prescribing in the nursery setting; infection control and prevention in the nursery setting; and the pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, and longitudinal follow-up of congenital and perinatal infections, particularly herpes simplex virus, cytomegalovirus, and syphilis.

David W. Kimberlin, MD, FAAP is the Principal Investigator for the Collaborative Antiviral Study Group (CASG), an international network of pediatric academic medical centers that evaluates antiviral therapeutics in rare diseases with a large unmet medical need, including neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections, congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease, congenital Zika infection, neonatal and infantile influenza infection, and neonatal enteroviral sepsis syndrome. Studies conducted by the CASG have led to new drug indications and label changes for acyclovir, valganciclovir, and oseltamivir, and non-CASG studies conducted by Dr. Kimberlin also have led to label changes for valacyclovir.

Dr. Kimberlin is Editor of the 2018 AAP Report of the Committee on Infectious Diseases (Red Book). He also was Editor of the 2015 edition, and was an Associate Editor of the 2012 and 2009 editions.

Bradley at Children' Hospital (now Rady's) in San Diego. He is Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group and Assistant Clinical Professor of Pediatrics in the UCSD residents' clinic. His involvement with Nelson's started with a conversation with Dr. Bradley while flying to an AAP conference, discussing his hobby of mobile app development. Dr. Smart has been an app developer since 2011, and brings together the two knowledge domains of computer science and pediatrics in creating the mobile version of Nelson's.

>William J. Steinbach, MD, FAAP is the Samuel L. Katz Professor of Pediatrics; Professor in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology; Chief, Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases; Director, Duke Pediatric Immunocompromised Host Program; and Director; International Pediatric Fungal Network at Duke University School of Medicine.
