Donald S. Burke, MD

Donald S. Burke, M.D. is Dean of the Graduate School of Public Health, Director of the Center for Vaccine Research, and Associate Vice Chancellor for Global Health at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also first occupant of the UPMC-Jonas Salk Chair in Global Health. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Burke received his B.A. from Western Reserve University and his M.D. from Harvard Medical School. He was an intern and resident in medicine at Boston City and Massachusetts General Hospitals and trained as a research fellow in infectious diseases at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He has studied prevention and control of infectious diseases of global concern, including HIV/AIDS, influenza, dengue, and emerging infectious diseases. He has lived six years in Thailand, worked extensively in Cameroon, and conducted field epidemiology studies in numerous other developing countries. Most recently he has led a transdisciplinary team that develops computational models and simulations of epidemic infectious diseases and uses these simulations to evaluate prevention and control strategies.
