Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, inflammatory phenotypes
I started to work in TB field in 2017 when getting an opportunity to do my PhD in Oxford University Clinical Research Unit. My current project is to identify risk factors for unfavorable outcomes of multidrug resistant tuberculosis patients. We focus on the impacts of host inflammatory phenotypes regulated by leukotriene A4 hydrolase genotype and comorbidities including diabetes mellitus and vitamin D deficiency.
