Bio

Dr. Jane C. Burns is the director of the Kawasaki Disease Clinic at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at UC San Diego. She is also a professor of pediatrics at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

After earning her medical degree at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in 1978, she completed her pediatric residency and fellowship at the University of Colorado in Denver, followed by additional training in pediatric infectious diseases and molecular virology at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital. She joined the faculty at Harvard Medical School in 1986 and moved to San Diego in 1990.

Internationally known for her research on Kawasaki disease (KD), her passion for studying KD has spanned almost three decades, with her first publication in 1982. In addition to her academic pursuits, Dr. Burns is the mother of two daughters. Her husband, John B. Gordon M.D., is an interventional cardiologist who cares for adults with long-term sequelae of KD. Together, working with a team from UC San Diego, they launched the Adult KD Collaborative, a long-range epidemiologic and clinical study of cardiovascular biomarkers and functional studies in adults who suffered from KD in childhood.
