Dr. Adriana Herrera Tremoulet
My research focuses on the interface between clinical research, pharmacology, and pediatric infectious diseases.
Please describe your work:
Have you received any recent grants?
I was awarded a Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Award to develop a diagnostic test for Kawasaki disease. I am also the recipient of an NIH Career Development Award (K23) and a Food and Drug Administration Orphan Drug Grant to study the addition of infliximab to the primary therapy of children with Kawasaki disease.
“I believe that the MAS in Clinical Research has provided me with the tools to successfully design, implement and execute Phase I through Phase III clinical trials in pediatric infectious and inflammatory diseases."
What are your most recent publications about?
My most recent publications focus on resistance to primary therapy and a shock syndrome (Journal of Pediatrics 2008 and 2009, respectively) in children with Kawasaki disease.
"I am grateful to my mentors and colleagues throughout my Masters in Clinical Research for their guidance and collaborations."
What do you like to do in your free time?
I have been dancing flamenco for the last 15 years. I also enjoy international travel, seeing plays at the Old Globe, and spending time with my husband, 2 year old daughter and certified, pet therapy Labrador retriever.
