Daniel Bausch, MD, MPH&TM, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Tropical Medicine and Section of Infectious Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, at the Tulane University Health Sciences Center. He is board-certified in internal medicine and infectious diseases with a Masters of Public Health degree in tropical medicine. Although still actively participating in teaching and other scholarly activities at Tulane, Dr. Bausch is presently seconded to the U.S. Naval Medical Research Unit 6 in Lima, Peru, where he is the Director of the Emerging Infections Department. He specializes in the research and control of emerging tropical viruses. Formerly with the CDC Special Pathogens Branch, Dr. Bausch has extensive experience in sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and Asia combating pathogens such as Ebola and Lassa viruses, hantavirus, and SARS coronavirus. He serves as a frequent consultant for the World Health Organization, United Nations, and National Institutes of Health. Dr. Bausch places a strong emphasis on capacity building in all his projects and also has a keen interest in the role of the scientist in promoting health and human rights.
