Anne Rimoin

Professor of Epidemiology and Gordon-Levin Endowed Chair in Infectious Diseases and Public Health, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health

Epidemiologist Rimoin has spent two decades studying emerging infections in Central Africa, and has long advocated for surveillance systems that allow for their rapid identification and control. Last year, when mpox began to sweep the globe, Rimoin was an early, authoritative voice calling on public health officials to take the threat seriously. Although the threat of mpox has since waned, she urges continued vigilance against infections with the potential for global spread, including mpox. “Just because we are not seeing cases doesn’t mean we can certainly declare victory,” she told the Washington Post.
