Jonathan Juliano


Jonathan J Juliano is an American physician/scientist.  He currently works at UNC (University of North Carolina).


Jonathan Juliano is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been on faculty since 2009.  In addition, he is an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Gillings School of Global Public Health and an instructor in the Curriculum of Genetics and Molecular Biology. He received his BSc from University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada in 1994 with Distinction.  He completed a MSPH at the UNC School of Public Health and his MD at the UNC School of Medicine in 2001.  He trained in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN from 2001 to 2005.  Following this, he completed his Infectious Disease Fellowship at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC in 2008.  He is board certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases.


Jonathan Juliano has led research efforts in infectious diseases and genetics, with the goal of improving our understanding of how infections cause disease, how infectious agents evolve, and how the genetic diversity impacts our understanding of drug resistance.  His work has focused on malaria; however he has worked with other agents as well. In particular, he is interested in understanding within host genetic diversity of malaria infections, as each infection may contain multiple genetically different parasite strains, and the impact of this diversity on drug and vaccine efficacy.  His work in this area has called into question some of the current practices of how clinical trials for malaria are conducted.  He has been the recipient of several awards including the Merle A. Sande/Pfizer Fellowship Award in International Diseases and the Terry Lee Award from the North Carolina Infectious Disease Society. He has also authored articles and a book chapter concerning the clinical care of malaria.
