Research Assistant Professor of Medicine

Areas of Interest

Reproductive health, sexually-transmitted infections, genomics


Waltmann is a research scientist trained in molecular epidemiology and genomics of infectious diseases. Her long-term career goal is to improve the reproductive and sexual health of individuals at risk of sexually-transmitted infections, especially those at risk of gonorrhea and with a focus on vulnerable or understudied populations, such as women, expectant mothers, and HIV-positive persons.

She strives to conduct thoughtfully designed observational studies to better understand risk factors for STIs and to advance knowledge of gonorrhea immunology by deploying cutting-edge, multi-omic approaches (genomics and transcriptomics) directly on patient samples exposed to gonorrhea and STIs. Waltmann ultimately wants her work to contribute to the improvement of health outcomes in those most at risk of STIs and the licensure of a gonorrhea vaccine.
