Dr. Deshpande completed her medical training as an Infectious Diseases fellow at UT Southwestern in 2009, during which she developed the hollow fiber model for disseminated intracellular Mycobcterium avium intracellulare complex (MAC) infection. Dr. Deshpande practiced as a general infectious diseases physician in the DFW area for four years. She has returned to Dr. Tawanda Gumbo’s lab at UT Southwestern to further pursue interests in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics and optimization of medical therapy for tuberculosis and MAC. She also looks forward to being a part of the clinical general Infectious Diseases services at William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital.
