His scientific career has been characterized by the integration of technologies and ideas across a broad spectrum of academic and clinical disciplines and the continuous development of highly significant advances in diagnostics, informatics, artificial intelligence, infectious diseases, genetic diseases, wound healing and evolutionary biology. Ehrlich was elected a fellow of both the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Academy of Microbiology based on his works in the development of molecular diagnostics, genomic technologies, and evolutionary and physiological modeling of chronic bacterial pathogenesis.

The CEZID seminar series is organized within the diagnostic medicine and pathobiology department in the College of Veterinary Medicine and is hosted by Juergen Richt, CEZID director.
