Dr. Shah is Associate Professor in Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology, and is the Medical Director for the Baltimore City Tuberculosis Program, an attending physician at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and is board certified in infectious diseases and internal medicine.     Dr. Shah’s research involves the evaluation and application of technologies to improve public health control and clinical care related to infectious diseases.  His primary focus at the Center for TB Research is the evaluation of new TB diagnostics (urinary LAM, Xpert MTB/Rif, Quantiferon-gold-in-tube, etc), and led evidence review for WHO LAM guideline development.  He has expertise in conducting economic evaluations,  and has assessed cost-effectiveness of various infectious disease related diagnostics and interventions.  He has led efforts to develop mathematical transmission models to examine the economic and epidemiological impact of the HIV continuum of care domestically and globally. Additionally, his interests include developing and evaluating the use of mobile health (mHealth) technologies to optimize adherence to medical treatments.  He is an inventor of a patient-centered technology for video-based asynchronous directly observed therapy (DOT) (licensed to emocha Mobile Health Inc), and has studied video-DOT implementation nationally and internationally.  He has expertise in decision-analysis, and is the inventor of HIV-ASSIST (www.hivassist.com).  HIV-ASSIST offers free, online interactive patient centered decision-support and education for providers choosing ART regimens for people living with HIV.      Dr. Shah serves on the Maryland Tuberculosis Guidelines committee, and previously served as a clinical TB expert for the regional TB Center of Excellence at the Global TB Institute, and is Medical Director for the Baltimore City Health Dept TB program; He has received the Maryland Department of Health’s David Glasser Award for Excellence in TB care.  He leads online TB educational activities at the Center for Clinical Global Health Education, is a 2016 recipient of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health's Faculty Advising Award, and was inducted into the Johns Hopkins Distinguished Teaching Society.
