Dr. Anne Rimoin Parents
Anne is the daughter of David Rimon and Maryann Rimoin. Her father David was a geneticist known for his research into the genetics of skeletal dysplasia, inheritable diseases such as Tay–Sachs disease, and diabetes. He died on 27, 2012, only two weeks after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
He made major discoveries in the study of dwarfism and skeletal disorders and helped develop large-scale testing for inherited disease. His studies pinpointed genetic defects that caused particular skeletal or growth disorders — revealing, for instance, that pygmies are short not because they lack growth hormone but because they carry an inherited trait that makes them biochemically resistant to the hormone’s effects.
In 1970 he co-founded an international registry of cases to help identify and diagnose inherited skeletal disorders and to find their genetic underpinnings.

Dr. Anne Rimoin UCLA
Dr. Anne is a Professor of Epidemiology at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health and Infectious Disease Division of the Geffen School of Medicine. She is also the director of UCLA Center for Global & Immigrant Health.
She also founded the UCLA-DRC Health Research and Training program in DRC to train U.S. and Congolese epidemiologists to conduct high-impact infectious disease research in low-resource, logistically-complex settings. Her team is also leading efforts to assess vaccine efficacy and durability of immune response to Ebolavirus vaccine in outbreak settings in the DRC. Her team also leads health mapping activities for better disease surveillance to better understand population immunity to vaccine-preventable diseases and coordinated studies of the epidemiology, natural history, and pathogenesis of acute and asymptomatic viral hemorrhagic fever infections in populations. She has been a strong advocate for capacity building in low resource settings and conducting disease surveillance in complex emergencies. She is currently leading a study of COVID-19 transmission among the Los Angeles health workforce.
