Developing a collaborative network to study TB and HIV biomarkers


Description

Developing a collaborative network to study TB and HIV biomarkers

Dr. Andrade lab is dedicated to identifying reliable host biomarkers that can predict susceptibility to infection and disease severity in tuberculosis (TB) and HIV. By establishing a strong network of collaborators from different TB endemic countries, such as India, China, South Africa and Brazil, his group has designed cohort studies in which synchronization of clinical and immunologic data collection results in validation of biomarker findings across countries. In addition, the Andrade Lab performs integrative analyses merging epidemiologic, socioeconomic, clinical, immunologic, microbiologic and geographic data to more robustly describe the TB determinants and help to delineate more reliable decision-making strategies.
