The author of over 110 peer-reviewed publications, Dr. Nardell is a prominent researcher of multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), with a particular focus on airborne TB transmission and control. He is currently studying the transmission of MDR-TB and the effectiveness of various control interventions in several research projects funded by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. He is also involved in a 5-year Fogarty Innovation Grant that uses new technological approaches to airborne infection control to train architects, engineers and physicians in air disinfection research in Peru, South Africa, and other high-burden countries. He is actively developing more efficient and inexpensive ultraviolet germicidal irradiation fixtures and a new environmentally-safe chemical vapor that may reduce airborne transmission.
