Dr. Andi Shane joined the Emory faculty in August 2006 following service as an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and a pediatric infectious disease fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco. Her major areas of interest include the prevention and epidemiology of enteric infections, evaluating applications of probiotics in the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases and vaccine immunogenicity, understanding the role of colonization with enteric organisms and staphylococci, neonatal sepsis, and the epidemiology and prevention of childcare infections.
Andi is involved in the activities of the NIH sponsored Emory Vaccine Trials and Evaluation Unit as the site investigator of a rotavirus vaccine cross over trial. She is also the Emory site investigator for the NIH-sponsored Collaborative Antiviral Study Group (CASG).
Dr. Shane co-leads introductory courses for medical students (SoCRATES) and pediatric fellows (FIRsT) to orient each to research experiences in their respective training programs. She co-teaches a course on Clinical Research Design as part of the ACTSI sponsored MSCR curriculum. She cofounded and co-leads a monthly K-Club series that seeks to optimize career development award applications and success. One of the greatest strengths of our pediatric research program is the opportunities for interdepartmental, school, and agency collaborations.
