The fundamental basis of my work is to use science to advance the global control of tuberculosis and limit the suffering of people with tuberculosis and nontuberculous mycobacterial diseases. Specifically, my research efforts are focused on improving the treatment of these diseases by using in vitro and in vivo experimental chemotherapy models to evaluate the antimycobacterial activity of compounds, drugs, and regimens; and to study drug, host, and pathogen factors that influence treatment outcome. My research is translational; the ultimate goal of all my work is to provide reliable preclinical data that can be used to inform drug and regimen development and clinical trial design. Current research projects include investigation of the treatment-shortening potential of clofazimine in regimens for drug-susceptible tuberculosis; evaluation of a long-acting injectable formulation of bedaquiline for tuberculosis preventive therapy; and development of nontuberculous mycobacteria infection models for treatment studies.
