Boghuma K. Titanji, MD, MSc, DTM&H, PhD is a first-year research-track resident in the J. Willis Hurst Internal Medicine Residency Program. Prior to starting her training at Emory, Dr. Titanji completed a PhD in infectious diseases at University College London in the United Kingdom. Her research focused on cell-to-cell spread of HIV-1 across a virological synapse and how antiretroviral agents can be used to target this unique mode of spread. She plans to continue her research on HIV pathogenesis and how to more effectively target the virus within the host, with the aim of eliminating the viral reservoir.
Dr. Titanji is also very passionate about how clinical research can be translated into policies that impact the lives of vulnerable patient populations, especially in Africa. As she continues to mature as a clinician and scientist, Dr. Titanji hopes to combine translational research with clinical practice to influence health policy from a global health perspective, especially in the field of infectious diseases. In her free time, Dr. Titanji enjoys playing board games, spending time with family and friends, exploring the beautiful city of Atlanta, cooking, and traveling.
