Bio

Adi V. Gundlapalli, MD, PhD, MS is an Associate Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine and University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics. As one of the few physicians in the intermountain west with training and experience in both infectious diseases and clinical immunology, his clinical interests include infectious diseases and non-AIDS immune deficiencies in adults. He provides both out-patient and in-patient consultations for primary and secondary immune deficiencies as well as community and hospital acquired infections. His other clinical interests include biodefense, emerging infections such as pandemic influenza, hospital preparedness for public health emergencies and informatics. He welcomes referral requests from providers in these clinical areas.

Dr. Gundlapalli received his medical degree from the Madras Medical College in Madras (now called Chennai), India. He received further training at the University of Connecticut Health Center where he earned a PhD in immunology and completed an internal medicine residency. He then moved to Utah where he completed a three-year clinical and research fellowship in infectious diseases at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He is board certified in internal medicine and infectious diseases. He holds a medical directorship of diagnostic immunology at ARUP Laboratories and adjunct faculty appointments at the University of Utah School of Medicine in the Departments of Pathology and Biomedical Informatics. He is a member of the Infectious Diseases Society of America, Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America and the American Medical Informatics Association. He is a member of the University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics Emergency Preparedness Committee, Laboratory Immunology Fellowship Committee (ARUP/Department of Pathology) and Clinical Informatics Fellowship Committee (Department of Biomedical Informatics). He enjoys teaching and mentoring and actively participates in the training of medical students, internal medicine and pathology residents, infectious diseases and immunology fellows and PhD students. Dr. Gundlapalli is also a staff physician at the VA Salt Lake City Health Care System.

Academic Bio

Adi V. Gundlapalli, MD, PhD, MS is an Associate Professor with Tenure in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He holds adjunct faculty appointments in the Departments of Pathology and Biomedical Informatics. His research interests include biodefense, epidemiology of infectious diseases and medically unexplained illnesses, public health informatics, homelessness and clinical immunology. These varied interests are tied together by qualitative and quantitative epidemiologic and informatics-based methods including surveys, bio-surveillance, natural language processing, machine learning and mathematical modeling.

Dr. Gundlapalli received his medical degree from the Madras Medical College in Madras (now called Chennai), India. He received further training at the University of Connecticut Health Center where he earned a PhD in immunology and completed an internal medicine residency. He then moved to Utah where he completed a three-year clinical and research fellowship in infectious diseases at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He recently also earned a master’s degree in medical informatics from the University of Utah. He is board certified in internal medicine and infectious diseases. His current faculty duties include medical directorship of diagnostic immunology at ARUP Laboratories and being an active staff physician/research scientist at the VA Salt Lake City Health Care System. He currently serves as the Chief of Medical Informatics and as the Chief Health Informatics Officer (CHIO) for the VA Salt Lake City Health Care System. He is active in academia in terms of holding NIH, CDC and VA funded research grants in biodefense, infectious diseases epidemiology and informatics, publishing in peer-reviewed journals and teaching/mentoring of future generations of medical professionals and researchers. He is frequently invited to lecture at local, regional and national and international venues in his areas of expertise.
