Devan Jaganath, MD: Improving the diagnosis of childhood TB in Uganda

Children and people living with HIV are two of the the most vulnerable populations for TB, Diagnosis in these groups is difficult and leads to high morbidity and mortality.  Dr  Jaganath has conducted tuberculosis research in Uganda and India throughout his career. He currently works on two projects in Kampala, Uganda; the Evaluation of Novel Diagnostics and Biomarkers for Childhood TB (END Childhood TB) Study, and a urine-based diagnosis of TB in people living with HIV. 

Dr Jaganath is a Clinical Fellow in Infectious Diseases in the Dept of Pediatrics at UCSF. He completed an MPH at Johns Hopkins, medical training at UCLA, and residency at Johns Hopkins.
