INTERSECT researchers use clinical and translational methods to study respiratory and severe illness in low resource settings around the globe.

We work closely with local physicians and scientists who are “on the ground” in these areas, treating and studying illness on a daily basis.

By fostering close research relationships between local health care professionals, INTERSECT members, and our international partners, we believe we can effectively address the most pressing public health issues affecting each of these populations.

Our goal is to create durable, long-term, cooperative research and training programs in each community where we are active.

Active Research Projects

Research is currently being conducted by INTERSECT members on non-communicable respiratory diseases, respiratory infections such as pneumonia and tuberculosis, sepsis, respiratory failure, and critical illness in low resource settings in Africa and Asia.
