Janice Endsley, PhD

Dr. Endsley's research is focused on mechanisms and regulation of cell mediated immunity to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb). Her lab utilizes human subjects, infected human lung tissue, and mouse and humanized mouse models of experimental tuberculosis (TB) for these studies. She is also investigating how human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) compromises CD8+T cell and macrophage function in the host immune response to M.tb. Additionally, she has NIH funding to develop the humanized mouse as a small animal model of HIV/M.tb co-infection. Development of this model will greatly enhance capabilities to design and screen innovative prophylactics and therapeutics for TB to use in populations with HIV-compromised immune systems. She is collaborating on studies of cytotoxic lymphocytes to include natural killer cell function in infectious disease (M.tb, B. anthracis) and reproduction.
