Amanda Martinot is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Global Health. She is a veterinarian-scientist and board-certified veterinary pathologist (anatomic) that specializes in animal models of infectious diseases of global health importance such as Tuberculosis (TB), HIV, and SARS CoV-2. Dr. Martinot received her veterinary degree from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003. She went on to study the epidemiology of infectious diseases and global health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she completed her MPH in 2006. She specialized in comparative pathology and infectious diseases by completing her pathology residency training at the Harvard Medical School, New England Primate Research Center, and her PhD at the Harvard School of Public Health where she studied the microbiology and immunopathology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. With over 10 years’ experience in TB biology, her independent research focuses on pre-clinical animal models for TB vaccine development and the basic immunology and virulence determinants underlying the TB host-pathogen interaction. As a veterinary pathologist, Dr. Martinot has expertise in animal models for infectious disease pathogenesis and drug and vaccine discovery research with a focus on non-human primate infectious disease pathology.
