Understanding human exposure to tuberculosis and related diseases

Transmission and exposure are among the most poorly understood aspects of bacterial disease. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a globally important microbial pathogen, and related environmental mycobacteria are useful models for understanding how infectious diseases emerge and spread. Molecular and epidemiological methods are being used to characterize the host, pathogen, and environmental factors involved in the acquisition of mycobacterial infections. The project includes a cohort of environmental mycobacteria patients in Washington and Oregon. The project is currently funded internally.
