I conduct clinical, translational and epidemiological research in TB with the overarching goal of improving the care of patients with TB and HIV/TB worldwide. My research is conducted both in the United States and internationally, in resource-limited settings, namely Hanoi, Vietnam. Our research team in Hanoi conducts NIH and CDC-funded field studies of new TB diagnostics and Phase 2 and 3 clinical trials in TB therapeutics, in close partnership with the Vietnam National TB Program, the Vietnam National Lung Hospital and the Vietnam National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology. With bench and translational science collaborators, I also lead a TB biomarker discovery and qualification program to identify biomarkers of treatment effect, funded by the NIH. I maintain an active academic clinical practice and direct the Chest Clinic at San Francisco General Hospital, where I also attend on the inpatient pulmonary service, the medical intensive care unit, and at the SFDPH TB Control Clinic. I provide clinical TB consultation and trainings as part of the CDC-funded UCSF Curry International Tuberculosis Center (www.currytbcenter.ucsf.edu).
