Dr. Valderramos graduated from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2009 from the Medical Scientist Training Program. She completed her PhD studies in the laboratory of Dr. David Fidock (Columbia University), where she investigated molecular mechanisms of antimalarial drug resistance in Plasmodium falciparum. While a UCSF OB/GYN resident, she began her work in placental malaria with Dr. Susan Fisher, investigating the role of placental macrophages in the pathogenesis of fetal growth restriction. She then went on to a Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship at UCLA, where she joined the innate immunology lab of Dr. Genhong Cheng to further her training in advanced methodologies in molecular immunology and bioinformatics. She joined UCSF faculty in 2016. Her research program is focused on translational approaches to understanding the pathophysiology of placental infections, especially malaria and Zika.
