Research/Areas of Interest:

Mycobacterium tuberculosis has the ability to persist within lesion with different stressors present. These stressors are thought to be responsible for Mtb survival and drug tolerance. We aim to develop in vitro models using lesion-specific stressors to dete‚Äčrmine how different lesion niches influence Mtb response to specific drug regimens.
