UT Southwestern scientist receives NIH Director's New Innovator Award
Date:10/1/2007

s behave and how microbes react to those drug concentrations. The aim is to use such information from pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics to kill mycobacterium tuberculosis and keep more strains of TB from developing.

Dr. Gumbo said he was thrilled to receive the award.

It will allow me to actually do particular experiments that started with some techniques that I pioneered in the lab using the hollow fiber model of tuberculosis, the native of Zimbabwe said. The typical tuberculosis treatment takes many, many months; usually six months and nine months in some situations. Hopefully, well reduce it to weeks.

Over the five years of the award, Dr. Gumbo will develop a treatment regimen based on blocking the mechanisms that tuberculosis bacteria use to avoid being killed by antibiotics.

Dr. Gumbo, who joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2006, graduated from the University of Zimbabwe Medical School in Harare, and completed his residency in internal medicine at Case Western Reserve University. He then completed a three-year fellowship to study infectious diseases at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

He spent a year doing research at the University of Zimbabwe before accepting a position in 2000 at Albany Medical College and the Ordway Research Institute in Albany, N.Y.

The other winners from Texas were Dr. Pedro Fernandez-Funez of the UT Medical Branch at Galveston and Dr. Kjersti Aagaard-Tillery of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
