Dr. Emily Kendall is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Infectious Diseases division at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her research focuses on infectious diseases dynamics and antibiotic resistance.
Her current work focuses on understanding tuberculosis transmission, treatment outcomes, and regimen development. She uses mathematical models and computational approaches to guide optimal use of drug regimens and other tools for more effectively combating tuberculosis on the level of individual patients and large-scale epidemics.
Dr. Kendall received her B.A. from Harvard University and her M.D. from the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. She completed her residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and a fellowship in infectious diseases at Johns Hopkins.
