Angela Rasmussen

Dr. Rasmussen is a virologist on the faculty at the Center for Infection and Immunity at the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health. She studies host responses to infection by combining classical virology with modern systems biology approaches. Her research objectives are to identify host response signatures predictive of infection severity or disease outcome and host pathways to target drug development or repurposing. She is particularly interested in viruses that are highly pathogenic, newly emergent or likely to emerge because of climate change, land development, or ecological disruption.
