Dr. Johanna Daily’s clinical and laboratory interests center on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of Plasmodium falciparum. She has carried out drug resistance and pathogenesis studies on malaria infected patients for over ten years in Senegal. She identified parasite biology from blood samples of infected patients, which had not been previously seen in laboratory studies. These studies are now extended to patients with cerebral malaria to define parasite biology associated with severe disease. She is presently working with collaborators in Malawi, Ethiopia and Rwanda to study host response to malaria and pathogenesis. Additional interests include mentorship of in-country scientists and internet-based medical education programs in resource-limited settings. She is the section malaria section editor for UpToDate, and an associate editor at Journal of Infectious Diseases.
Dr. Daily completed her medical education at the State University of New York at Syracuse, her internal medicine residency at the Tufts Medical Center, and her fellowship in infectious disease at the Brigham and Woman’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She received a MSc of Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health in 2006. She has a Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers’ Health from the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. After rising through the ranks at Harvard to Assistant Professor of Medicine, she moved to Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2009 as an Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases.
After attending this activity, participants will be able to:
Discuss diagnostic approaches to malaria
Recognize and manage severe disease
Understand pathogenesis of cerebral malaria
Albert Einstein College of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1 credit towards the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
