Anne W. Rimoin is an associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology at UCLA Fielding School of Public Health and an expert on infectious diseases. Rimoin specializes in the design and implementation of disease surveillance systems in remote rural areas to detect novel pathogens of animal origin that are crossing species into human populations in central Africa. She also aims to understand the epidemiology and ecological factors that influence transmission and spread of these diseases.
In 2004, Rimoin founded the UCLA-DRC Research program in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the vast majority of her research is based. In addition to her work on emerging infections, Rimoin provides technical assistance to the Congolese government for general disease surveillance, polio eradication and routine immunization.
