Anne Piantadosi, MD, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. Her research focuses on the emergence, evolution, and pathogenesis of viruses of clinical and public health importance, with a particular interest in arboviruses. Her projects combine clinical/translational, laboratory, and computational approaches. Current projects include: 1) Understanding the clinical manifestations and molecular epidemiology of Powassan virus, an emerging tick-borne flavivirus.
2) Investigating dengue virus evolution and relationships to the host immune response. 3) Detecting and discovering unappreciated/novel viruses in patients and vectors using metagenomic sequencing.
