    Role: Postdoctoral Scholar
    Role Description: Dr. Vanderburg is a co-investigator in the Respiratory Infection Severity and Etiology in Sri Lanka (RISE-SL) Study, which is a large prospective cohort of patients with lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs). This cohort represents an opportunity to test the performance of known LRTI severity prediction scores and biomarkers with the aim to improve early recognition and treatment of severe LRTIs in Sri Lanka and comparable LMICs.

    Role: Predoctoral Scholar
    Role Description: In northern Tanzania, bacterial zoonoses (e.g. brucellosis, leptospirosis, and Q fever) are more common causes of febrile illness than malaria, yet much is still unknown about epidemiologic trends and strategies for treatment of these infections in Africa. As part of a multi-year effort to study these infections at a tertiary care center in Northern Tanzania, Dr. Vanderburg investigated the burden of Q fever, including leading systematic review of all published epidemiologic studies of Q fever in animals and humans in Africa. This work served as a foundation for future OneHealth research to address this neglected tropical disease.
