Our research program, based in Mbarara, Uganda and Durban, South Africa, aims to improve health and quality of life for people living with HIV in low-income countries. This program of work includes:
1) clinical trials to evaluate scalable interventions to improve HIV care delivery, and reduce treatment failure and drug resistance
2) translational research to determine the effects of HIV infection on cardiovascular disease and aging;
3) large, population-based studies to elucidate the intersecting communicable and non-communicable disease epidemics
In addition, I practice clinical infectious diseases in both Boston and South Africa, and am the primary mentor to over a dozen trainees and junior faculty, and have been recognized for this with the Harvard Medical School Young Mentor Award.
