  • Amit Pahwa Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Amit Pahwa, M.D.
    Medicine

    The Amit Pahwa Lab conducts research on a variety of topics within internal medicine. Our most ...recent studies have explored misanalysis of urinalysis results, urinary fractional excretion indices in the evaluation of acute kidney injury and nocturnal enuresis as a risk factor for falls in older women. We also investigate cancer diagnostics and treatments. In this area, our recent research has included studying cutaneous shave biopsies for diagnosing primary colonic adenocarcinoma as well as growth inhibition and apoptosis in human brain tumor cell lines using selenium. view more

  • Elizabeth Selvin Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Elizabeth Selvin, Ph.D., M.P.H.
    Medicine

    The Elizabeth Selvin Lab examines the intersection of epidemiology, clinical policy and public ...health policy. One of our key goals is to use the findings of epidemiologic research to inform the screening, diagnosis and treatment of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and kidney disease. Much of our work looks at biomarkers and diagnostics related to diabetes and diabetes complications. Our findings — linking hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) to diabetic complications and identifying the role of A1c in diabetes diagnosis — have influenced clinical practice guidelines. view more

  • Laboratory for Integrated NanoDiagnostics (LIND)

    Principal Investigator:
    Stuart Ray, M.D.
    Medicine

    The Laboratory for Integrated NanoDiagnostics (LIND) is developing innovative technologies for ...accurate, fast, compact, portable, manufacturable, low-cost diagnostics for a wide variety of applications. Our current focus is a large-scale collaboration with imec, a leading microelectronics company in Leuven, Belgium, where our silicon is designed and manufactured. With major funding from miDiagnostics we are inventing solutions that are opening new avenues. view more

    Research Areas: quantitative RT-PCR, in vitro diagnostics, surface chemistry, lens-free imaging, microfluidics, colorimetry, fluorimetry
  • Natasha Chida Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Natasha Chida, M.D., M.S.P.H.
    Medicine

    The Natasha Chida Lab investigates methods for using education and curriculum development to im...prove patient outcomes worldwide, primarily by optimizing education of physicians-in-training. Most recently, our team has worked to develop and evaluate an assessment tool for evaluating internal medicine residents’ understanding of tuberculosis diagnostics. Previous research includes a retrospective cohort study on the high proportion of extrapulmonary TB in a low-prevalence setting as well as an analysis of ways to define clinical excellence in adult infectious disease practice. view more

  • Richard Chaisson Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Richard Chaisson, M.D.
    Medicine

    Research in the Richard Chaisson Lab primarily examines tuberculosis and HIV infection, with sp...ecific focus on global epidemiology, clinical trials, diagnostics and public health interventions. Our recent research has involved evaluating a molecular diagnostic test for tuberculosis in HIV patients; observing TB responses during treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis; and examining antiretroviral therapy adherence, virologic and immunologic outcomes in adolescents compared with adults in Southern Africa. view more

  • The Transplant and Oncology Infectious Diseases (TOID) Center

    Lab Website
    Principal Investigator:
    Kieren Marr, M.D.
    Medicine

    The mission of the Transplant and Oncology Infectious Diseases (TOID) Center is to expand insti...tutional expertise in clinical and academic activities focused on infectious complications in transplant (solid organ and stem cell) and oncology patients at Johns Hopkins medical institutions. Key efforts include developing standardized algorithms for the prevention and treatment of infections in these vulnerable patients and to establish an expanded infrastructure to facilitate clinical and translational studies at TOID. Current research projects focus on diagnostics for invasive fungal infections and specialized studies of the pathogenesis of candidiasis and aspergillosis. view more

  • William Bishai Laboratory

    Lab Website
    Principal Investigator:
    William Bishai, M.D., Ph.D.
    Medicine

    The William Bishai Laboratory studies the molecular pathogenesis of tuberculosis. The overall g...oal of our laboratory is to better understand tuberculosis pathogenesis and then to employ this understanding toward improved drugs, vaccines and diagnostics. Since Mycobacterium tuberculosis senses and adapts to a wide array of conditions during the disease process, it is clear that the regulation of expression of virulence factors plays an important role in pathogenesis. As a result, a theme of our research is to assess mycobacterial genes important in gene regulation. We are also interested in cell division in mycobacteria and the pathogenesis of caseation and cavitation. view more

    Research Areas: vaccines, genomics, drugs, pathogenesis, tuberculosis
  • Yukari Manabe Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Yuka Manabe, M.D.
    Medicine

    Investigators in the Yukari Manabe Lab evaluate the accuracy of rapid, point-of-care diagnostic...s for HIV, tuberculosis and related infectious diseases in resource-limited settings particularly sub-Saharan Africa and examine the impact of diagnostic interventions on disease detection and patient outcomes. The team also conducts operational and translational research in tuberculosis and HIV co-infection. view more

    Research Areas: Africa, infectious disease, AIDS, HIV, point-of-care diagnostics, resource limitations, tuberculosis
