Research and Professional Experience
My interest is primarily in clinical trials of new antiretroviral agents (phase 2-4), both in the United States and in developing countries. I also conduct research on the natural history of HIV infection and its complications. I am an investigator in the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN), the Multicenter AIDS Cohort (MACS), and the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG). Within the HPTN and ACTG I have been involved in international clinical trials, especially in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
