Luke Davis, MD
Associate Professor of Epidemiology (Microbial Diseases) and Associate Professor in Pulmonary; Associate Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine)
Dr. Davis is Associate Professor of Public Health (Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases) and Medicine (Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep Medicine) at Yale. His research is based in Uganda and uses translational methods to improve TB diagnosis and evaluation in high-burden, resource-constrained settings. Ongoing projects span two general areas: 1) identifying TB biomarkers for diagnosis and monitoring, and 2) using implementation science to improve TB case finding and linkage to care. Training and capacity-building are a core aspect of all research activities, and a focus of the Fogarty Pulmonary Complications of AIDS Research Training Program at Makerere University and Walimu (www.walimu.org), a non-profit that uses implementation science to improve care of severe acute illness in Uganda.
