Luke Davis Jr, MD

Associate Professor of Epidemiology (Microbial Diseases) and of Medicine (Pulmonary); Affiliated Faculty, Yale Institute for Global Health



I am a pulmonary/critical care physician and epidemiologist using translational research and implementation science to improve diagnostic evaluation and case finding for tuberculosis (TB), a leading cause of death in low- and middle-income countries.

I teach a graduate course on implementation science and mentor students at the Yale School of Public Health, and have a leading role in international research training programs in low- and middle-income countries.

I attend in the Medical Intensive Care Unit and the Winchester TB Clinic at Yale-New Haven Hospital as a Yale Medicine physician, and enjoy caring for patients and families, and teaching medical students, residents, and fellows.
