Devan Jaganath, MD, MPH

Assistant Adjunct Professor

Devan Jaganath, MD, MPH, is a clinical fellow in the UCSF Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Global Health. His research focuses on improving the care of children with tuberculosis (TB). TB is a leading cause of mortality in children worldwide, but it has been neglected in part due to the difficulty in diagnosis. Children with TB often have non-specific symptoms and current diagnostics are inadequate. As a recipient of the Pediatric Scientist Development Program (PSDP) fellowship, Devan works with Dr. Adithya Cattamanchi to evaluate new tools to better diagnose TB among children in Uganda. Devan completed his MD at UCLA, MPH at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and pediatrics residency at Johns Hopkins.
