Dr. Kruh-Garcia received her PhD in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology from Stony Brook University in New York. She joined the Mycobacteria Research laboratories at Colorado State University as faculty in 2015. Dr. Kruh-Garcia’s research currently focuses on the characterization of extracellular vesicles (EVs) from biological fluids as reservoirs of disease biomarkers, including tuberculosis and neurological disorders. Her lab utilizes mass spectrometry to determine the dynamics of the proteomic composition of host EVs change in response to infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis and anti-tubercular drug treatment. Her primary interests include defining novel proteomic fingerprints of tuberculosis disease state and understanding the effect of bacterial strain variation on biomarker success.
