Tucker Lab Team

Principal Investigator: Dr. Liz Tucker

Dr. Tucker is an Assistant Professor in the Pediatric Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine division of the ACCM at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She is a clinician-scientist who cares for children in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, with a particular focus in neurocritical care medicine. Her research investigates the pathogenesis of brain injury in meningitis and drug biodistribution during the course of infection by utilizing an animal model of Tuberculous meningitis (TBM).

Collaborators/Mentors

Dr. Tucker’s research benefits from a strong network of collaborators in neuroscience, pediatric infectious disease, nuclear medicine, pharmacology and nanomedicine, including her mentors Dr. Sujatha Kannan and Dr. Sanjay Jain. These mentors and collaborations provide unparalleled expertise and contribute immensely to Dr. Tucker’s research projects.
Dr. Sujatha Kannan is a pediatric critical care attending in Johns Hopkins’ Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and is a clinician-scientist with expertise in neuroinflammation in the developing brain and development of nanotechnology to enhance drug delivery to the brain.
Dr. Sanjay Jain is a pediatric infectious disease attending at Johns Hopkins’ Children’s Center and is a clinician-scientist with expertise in pediatric meningitis, tuberculosis, noninvasive positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and development of novel PET tracers. (https://tbcenter.jhu.edu/people/sanjay-jain-md/). Dr. Jain is also the Director of the Center for Infection and Inflammation Imaging Research (https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/infectious-diseases/research/infection_inflammation_imaging/index.html) with state-of-the-art facilities for noninvasive imaging of small animals which Dr. Tucker’s lab utilizes for her research.[/wr_text][/wr_column][/wr_row][wr_item_buttonbar button_text=”Research Home” link_type=”page” button_type_url=”https://” single_item=”499″ open_in=”current_browser” icon=”” button_size=”default” button_width=”” button_height=”” style=”default” button_color=”btn-primary” css_suffix=”” id_wrapper=”” disabled_el=”no” ][/wr_item_buttonbar][wr_item_buttonbar button_text=”Basic and Translational Research” link_type=”page” button_type_url=”https://” single_item=”514″ open_in=”current_browser” icon=”” button_size=”default” button_width=”” button_height=”” style=”default” button_color=”btn-primary” css_suffix=”” id_wrapper=”” disabled_el=”no” ][/wr_item_buttonbar][wr_item_buttonbar button_text=”Tucker Lab” link_type=”page” button_type_url=”https://” single_item=”6535″ open_in=”current_browser” icon=”” button_size=”default” button_width=”” button_height=”” style=”default” button_color=”btn-primary” css_suffix=”” id_wrapper=”” disabled_el=”no” ][/wr_item_buttonbar][wr_item_buttonbar button_text=”Projects / Research” link_type=”page” button_type_url=”https://” single_item=”6557″ open_in=”current_browser” icon=”” button_size=”default” button_width=”” button_height=”” style=”default” button_color=”btn-primary” css_suffix=”” id_wrapper=”” disabled_el=”no” ][/wr_item_buttonbar][wr_item_buttonbar button_text=”Projects / Research copy” link_type=”page” button_type_url=”https://” single_item=”6557″ open_in=”current_browser” icon=”” button_size=”default” button_width=”” button_height=”” style=”default” button_color=”btn-primary” css_suffix=”” id_wrapper=”” disabled_el=”no” ][/wr_item_buttonbar]
