Kate Aultman, PhD is the Director of Research at the School of Health Professions at UT Health San Antonio.  She received her PhD in biochemistry at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and her undergraduate degree at the University of New Orleans.  Her early research focused on metabolism, nutrition and heart disease but quickly transitioned to infectious disease.  A Science and Diplomacy Fellowship from AAAS provided the opportunity to work in the US Agency for International Development and the WHO Global Program on AIDS to develop programs to slow the spread of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and to work at the country level to develop AIDS Control Programs.  After that she transitioned to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, where she continued her focus on global infectious diseases and specialized on the vector borne diseases, including malaria, dengue, Chagas’ disease and sleeping sickness.  Important projects included sequencing of the genome of Anopheles gambiae, the most important mosquito vector of malaria in Africa and establishing an industry-academic-government partnership to develop novel products for vector control.  In 2005 she was recruited to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to establish a vector control program there.  The focus of that program included expanded support for product development, including discovery of novel modes of action; practical efforts to interrupt pathogen transmission at the local or national level; and expansion and evolution of the international regulatory and policy framework for evaluating vector control products.  Throughout her time at the NIH and the Gates Foundation she worked to develop early stage investigators and their projects. In her position at UT Health she continues that work.
