The research of James T. Gaensbauer, M.D., M.S., spans both clinical medicine and public health. In clinical medicine, Dr. Gaensbauer uses data-driven approaches to understand and improve how to practice medicine. He focuses on identifying effective and resource-responsible approaches to diagnosing and treating pediatric infectious diseases. In the area of public health, Dr. Gaensbauer's primary research is on tuberculosis and finding ways to identify children with latent tuberculosis and enter them into effective preventative treatment.
In the clinical area, Dr. Gaensbauer strives to identify practices that minimize potential harm, unnecessary testing and treatment. This optimizes patient outcomes, tolerability and cost-effectiveness in the treatment of pediatric infectious diseases. The overall goal of this public health and tuberculosis research is to contribute to national efforts to achieve tuberculosis elimination and prevent potentially severe disease in children.
