Robert Striker, MD, PhD


Robert Striker, MD, PhD, is a UW Health infectious disease doctor. He also serves as an associate professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in the Department of Medicine.

Dr. Striker cares for people with HIV, a virus that attacks the body’s immune system. He also treats viral hepatitis and sexually transmitted diseases. Another clinical interest involves helping people who are at risk of acquiring HIV and working to reduce that risk.

During initial visits, Dr. Striker tries to get to know his patients. He explains their medical conditions, listens to their concerns and answers their questions. He outlines their treatment options, which often include antiviral medications. Together, they create personalized care plans.

Fascinated with the war between germs and the human body, Dr. Striker is excited about new tools that help doctors understand an individual’s immune system. Dr. Striker conducts research to learn ways to strengthen weak immune systems. He’s also interested in how doctors can use the immune system to fight cancer.

During his free time, Dr. Striker enjoys hiking with his family. He’s also a Game of Thrones fan.

We do everything possible to help patients overcome their infections and live healthy lives.
