Dr. Michelle Hsiang’s career is focused on improving the health of children through clinical care and the study of malaria, an infectious disease that is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in resource-limited settings. Dr. Hsiang completed her undergraduate training at Stanford University.  She received her MD at Baylor College of Medicine, and completed a residency in Pediatrics and fellowship in Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Hsiang’s research is in the evaluation of surveillance and response strategies for malaria elimination. Specifically, she is interested in helping national malaria programs find and treat patients who are without symptoms, but are infected and serve as reservoirs for persistent transmission. She currently has field sites in Swaziland, Namibia, Thailand, and Indonesia. She is the Deputy Lead of Operational Research for the UCSF Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative, and is a member of the Malaria Elimination Group (MEG). She is funded by grants from the Horchow Family Fund for Endowed Scholars in Pediatrics at UT Southwestern, National Institutes of Health, Burroughs Wellcome Fund/American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Novartis Foundation for Sustainable Development.

She joined the faculty at UT Southwestern in August 2014 and splits her time between clinical care, malaria research, and teaching and mentoring trainees. In September 2014, Dr. Hsiang was appointed Assistant Adjunct Professor at UT School of Public Health.
