Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children affecting Puerto Rican and African American children more than other races/ethnicities. We study the interplay between genes and the environment to determine the root causes of asthma health disparities in children and adolescents to identify and develop targeted interventions to improve asthma outcomes. The complexities of asthma and respiratory disease require a multi-disciplinary approach.

The major focus of my research program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients with tuberculosis (TB). Each year, nearly 2 million of the 8 million estimated patients with TB worldwide are “missed”. The failure to diagnose TB rapidly and initiate treatment contributes to worse outcomes for patients and ongoing transmission of the disease in the community. To address this challenge, I have developed an innovative research program that spans the translational research spectrum.
