Tuan Tran, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor, Infectious Diseases at Indiana University School of Medicine


Dr. Tran studies the host response to malaria in endemic populations. As a graduate student at Emory University, he evaluated immune responses to malaria vaccine candidate antigens in residents of the Brazilian Amazon. After completing residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and an Infectious Diseases fellowship at NIAID, he trained in Dr. Peter Crompton’s laboratory, where he studied naturally acquired immunity to falciparum malaria in a cohort study conducted in Mali. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine, where he studies both naturally acquired and vaccine-induced immunity to malaria using systems-based approaches. By performing integrative analyses of high-dimensional immunological data generated from well-designed cohort studies, his group aims to elucidate the mechanisms of protective immunity to malaria.
