Biography

Dr. Reddy received her medical degree from Padmashree Dr D. Y. Patil Medical College in Mumbai,India. Her interest in Tuberculosis research and its global impact lead her to pursue a Master’s in Public Health, which strengthened her background in study design, data analysis and interpretation. During her fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care medicine at Boston University, she actively sought TB-related epidemiological projects under the mentorship of Drs Saukkonen, Ellner, Hochberg and Horsburgh. In collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), she is studying the utility of Alanine transaminase Kinetics as a biomarker for TB treatment related Hepatotoxicity. She has been working very closely with Drs. Ellner and Hochberg in the Infectious diseases Division at Boston University to establish the Regional Prospective Observational Research in Tuberculosis (RePORT) cohort (4000 Pulmonary TB cases and 8820 household contacts in 4 yrs) in Pondicherry, India in collaboration with Jawarharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER). She is particularly interested in looking at the association of air pollution and tobacco use with Tuberculosis within this cohort. She plans to use her experience thus far to develop translational research projects looking at transcriptomic biomarkers with diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic utility for TB infection and disease under the mentorship of Drs Jacqueline Achkar and Simon Spivack at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Research Interest

Impact of air pollution and tobacco smoke on tuberculosis as a disease and its treatment outcomes. Development of a non-invasive transcriptomic biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of latent and active tuberculosis.
