Jonathan Mosser, MD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Health Metrics Sciences at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, where he leads both the Vaccine Coverage and Vaccine-Preventable Disease team and the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) team. These dedicated teams of professional staff, researchers, and trainees produces estimates of vaccine coverage, VPD burden, and NTD burden for the Global Burden of Disease study, while also using geospatial modeling techniques to estimate local patterns of intervention coverage and disease burden around the world.

Dr. Mosser studied biochemistry as an undergraduate at Middlebury College. He then completed a MPH with a focus in epidemiology and biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a MD from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His clinical training included a residency in Pediatrics and a fellowship in Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Hospital, and he continues to see patients as a practicing Pediatric Infectious Disease physician.
