Thuong Thuong Nguyen

Senior Scientist

Tuberculosis

Dr Thuong is working in the Tuberculosis Research Group, with research interests in human genetics and macrophage function. Her Wellcome fellowship focuses on the pathogenesis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) dissemination, studying the interplay of macrophage and Mtb under the influence of both human host and bacterial pathogen genetic factors. To study macrophage response to Mtb infection or ligand stimulation, Thuong has established real-time, functional readouts of activity within the phagosome, such as hydrolytic activity and radical production. These assays allow functional analysis of macrophage activity in TB patients, which should contribute to understanding of disease development.
