Sex differences in pulmonary and cardiovascular complications of tuberculosis and HIV

The broad goal of Dr. Zifodya’s research is to understand sex differences in progression of lung disease in vulnerable populations in sub-Saharan Africa. Current research is focused on risk factors and prevalence of pulmonary and cardiovascular disease, both of which have traditionally been understudied in African women living with HIV. He is studying inflammatory and immune activation responses in addition to transcriptomic differences that may contribute to sex differences in pulmonary and cardiovascular disease in Kenyan adults living with HIV as compared to HIV-negative adults, with a particular focus on those with a prior history of tuberculosis.
