Dr. Adriana Tremoulet is the associate director of the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at UC San Diego. In this role, she cares for nearly 1,500 children with Kawasaki disease in San Diego County and an additional 90 children a year hospitalized at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego .

Dr. Tremoulet graduated from Harvard University with a major in biochemistry and attended medical school at the University of California, Los Angeles. During medical school, she spent a year as a fellow in the National Institutes of Health Clinical Research Training Program. She then completed her residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and her pediatric infectious disease fellowship at UC San Diego.

In 2013, Dr. Tremoulet was appointed as the associate director of clinical research at Rady Children's. She is also the site principal investigator for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development-funded Pediatric Trials Network and Research Program in Developmental Pharmacology at UC San Diego. Dr. Tremoulet has led Phase I through III clinical trials, including a Food and Drug Administration Orphan Products grant-funded Phase III clinical trial on the use of infliximab as adjunctive primary therapy in Kawasaki disease.
