    Collapse overview
    Dr. Neeta Thakur is a pulmonary and critical care physician at UCSF who examines the role of social and environmental stressors on asthma susceptibility and morbidity in vulnerable populations. Better definitions of the mechanism of how social and environmental stressors impact asthma will allow for the development of targeted interventions and therapies to improve asthma-related outcomes in vulnerable populations. Dr. Thakur completed a dual degree program in public health and medicine at the University of Arizona focused on community health and program development and evaluation. She came to UCSF for residency in Internal Medicine and stayed to complete her Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship. She is currently a member of the Asthma Origins Laboratory, under the mentorship of Dr. Esteban Burchard (pharm.ucsf.edu/burchard). The lab focuses on studying the interplay between individuals’ genes and their social and physical environments to determine the root causes of asthma health disparities.

    Dr. Thakur’s research focuses on: 1) Determining the social and environmental stressors that contribute to poor asthma outcomes and defining the mechanism by which they contribute to disease; 2) Identifying health inequalities in the management of patients with asthma; and 3) Designing and evaluating interventions aimed at reducing asthma exacerbations rates in under-represented populations.
