Adriana Tami is an Assistant Professor in Clinical Epidemiology of Infectious and Tropical Diseases at the Department of Medical Microbiology and Infection Prevention, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), Groningen, The Netherlands and associate Professor at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Universidad de Carabobo (UC), Valencia, Venezuela. 
She trained as medical doctor at the UC and later obtained her MSc, the Diploma in Tropical Medicine & Hygiene, and PhD at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK.

Dr Tami has expertise in clinical and field epidemiology, epidemic preparedness and public health of infectious and tropical diseases. She heads the Epidemiology of Tropical and Infectious Diseases group (EPITROP) which has long-standing experience in running cohort and case-control studies at large scale, temporo-spatial analysis of disease spread and qualitative studies. Her research has focused on the clinical epidemiology and control of pathogens of epidemic potential, including those of zoonotic origin such as arboviruses (dengue, chikungunya and Zika viruses), malaria and SARS-CoV-2 at national and international level. Her group’s expertise on the repurposing of clinical cohorts to tackle the subsequent epidemics of chikungunya, Zika and COVID-19 in Latin America is key for epidemic preparedness for new or re-emerging infectious pathogens and forms the basis of the newly Horizon Europe-funded CONTAGIO* project (Number 101137283). Her group is also involved in tackling antimicrobial resistance at cross-border level (Netherlands-Germany) through epidemiological and qualitative studies (CHARE GD II project). She currently leads COVID-19 projects in the Netherlands (https://www.umcg.nl/-/covid-home) and Venezuela as part of the ZIKAlliance (https://zikalliance.tghn.org/)  and ORCHESTRA (https://orchestra-cohort.eu/) EU-funded international consortiums to determine predicting factors for pathogen spread, disease severity and long-term sequelae.
