Bruno Travi, DVM, PhD

Dr. Travi's research interests focus on the transmission cycles of leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease that affects millions of people in tropical and subtropical areas of the world. The ultimate goal of our laboratory is to identify strategies that decrease the burden of cutaneous and visceral leishmaniasis. We are evaluating the comparative advantage of treating susceptible hosts based on early molecular diagnosis versus treatment initiated upon serological or clinical diagnosis.
