Dr. Gupte is a physician-scientist whose research is focused on the intersection of infectious and chronic lung diseases in low- and middle-income settings. He leads several Indo-US collaborative studies to describe the epidemiology and pathogenesis of lung injury in tuberculosis (TB)/HIV/diabetes, measure its impact on poor clinical outcomes, and identify therapeutic and programmatic interventions to improve post-TB lung health and longevity.

Dr. Gupte serves on several multi-national TB/HIV research consortia, such as the TB Transformative Science Working Group of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG), Lung Health Working Group of the International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) network, and is Chairperson of the Clinical and Epidemiology Working Group of the RePORT-India TB Research Consortium.

Dr. Gupte completed his medical training in India, Master’s and Doctoral training from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and has previously served as faculty in the Division of Infectious Diseases, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He is a 2017 Fogarty Fellow and recipient of the Arthur M. Dannenberg, Jr., Award for excellence in TB research.
