Research interests

Adriana Tami heads the Epidemiology of Tropical and Infectious Diseases group (EPITROP) which is embedded within the research group Genomics for Infection Prevention (GIP).

The focus of EPITROP is broad and encompasses clinical and field epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, temporo-spatial analysis of disease spread, qualitative studies and public health of infectious diseases in the tropics and sub-tropics. The aim is to identify ways to better target surveillance and control measures and improve preparedness against epidemics of important arboviruses such as dengue, chikungunya and Zika.

Our group has long-standing experience in running cohort and case-control studies at large scale in different countries such as Venezuela, Suriname and Curacao. Currently, three PhD students are analyzing and publishing data derived from a large cohort and health centre-based case-control study of dengue in Venezuela and a study in Curacao on chikungunya. EPITROP participates in two EU funded Consortia projects: a) the IDAMS study (Clinical evaluation of dengue and identification of risk factors for severe disease: a multicentre study in 8 countries) and b) ZIKAlliance (A Global Alliance for Zika Virus Control and Prevention).
