  • PGDipSci (University of Queensland)
  • B.Sc(Hons) (Universitas Gadjah Mada)

Dr. R. Tedjo Sasmono is a Senior Research Fellow at the Eijkman Institute. He started his scientific career at the Institute back in 1994, soon after graduated from Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia as a research assistant. He was then pursued a postgraduate diploma study in molecular biology in 1997 at the University of Queensland, Australia. In 2000, he continued his education for doctoral study in molecular biology and obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, University of Queensland in 2003. Afterward, he performed a short postdoctoral fellowship at the same Institute and in 2004 he continued the postdoctoral training in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Monash University, Australia. He was then moving back to Indonesia and setting up Dengue Research Unit at the Eijkman Institute. Dr. Sasmono received several scholarships/awards such as the Australian IPRS and UQ-IRPS scholarships (2000), the University of Queensland Indonesian Alumni Award (2011), Australia Awards Fellowship (2016), ASTMH Travel Award (2016), and World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)-Bioventures for Global Health (BVGH) Sabbatical Fellowship (2018). Currently, Dr. Sasmono is the group leader for Dengue Research Unit. Dr. Sasmono other activities including serving as a member of the National Ethics Commision for Health Research and Development, Indonesia and member of the Medical Research Ethics Committee of the National Institute for Health Research and Development (NIHRD), Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia.
