Andrea DeLuca, MHS
Andrea DeLuca, MHS, is a Research Associate faculty member in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Project Director for the CCGHE-directed Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Government Medical College (BJGMC)-JHU Fogarty Training Program in Pune, India.
Ms. DeLuca has ten years of research experience, particularly in multi-center studies. She initially coordinated a USAID-funded project in TB clinics in South Africa and moved on to be part of the Consortium to Respond Effectively to the AIDS TB Epidemic (CREATE). CREATE was a portfolio of population-level studies aiming to lower TB incidence in areas of high HIV prevalence, and Ms. DeLuca's work focused on community engagement and advocacy for policy change. In 2009, Ms. DeLuca began working for the Pneumonia Etiology Research for Child Health (PERCH) project as the senior-coordinator of a 7-site hospital-based case-control study. As part of the BJGMC-JHU Fogarty program, she is now based part-time in India, focusing on building institutional capacity to conduct TB research as well as monitoring and evaluating program objectives. In addition, Ms. DeLuca is working on several other India-based projects, including a large TB cohort study (C-TRIUMPH) and a surveillance project at an MDR-TB hospital in Mumbai.
Ms. DeLuca received undergraduate degrees in biology and creative writing from Pacific Lutheran University and a master of health science in international health, disease prevention and control from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
