Dr. Susheela Tridandapani is a Professor of Internal Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. She obtained her PhD in 1998, following which she pursued postdoctoral work at Harvard University and at the Ohio State University. She was appointed to the Faculty in Internal Medicine in 2002. Dr. Tridandapani has a fully funded (NIAID, NCI) research program examining the molecular mechanisms of innate immune responses to bacterial pathogens and IgG-immune complexes, particularly in the context of monoclonal antibody therapy for cancer. She has trained and continues to train numerous graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who have successfully competed for prestigious fellowships from NIH, AHA and ACS. She currently serves as the Co-Director of the Lung Inflammation T32 Program.
