In her role as Principal Investigator, Priya Shete is responsible for the leadership, vision, and setting the scientific direction of the CPR3 team.

Dr. Shete is also an Associate Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology based in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at UCSF where her research has focused on improving access to and quality of tuberculosis (TB) care, and now COVID-19 care, for vulnerable populations. Her research has highlighted the central importance of patient and health system barriers to quality of TB care in high burden settings.

Priya’s research background is enhanced by her experience working with Global TB Programme of the World Health Organization. She also served as a public health advisor for USAID with a focus on health system strengthening and with the California Department of Public Health and their team lead for modeling and analytics during the COVID-19 response. Priya also directs the UCSF Implementation Science Training Program. She serves as an attending physician on the Pulmonary Consult Service, in the Medical Intensive Care Unit, and in the Department of Public Health Tuberculosis Clinic at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.
