Global health research is a collaborative process, and each researcher at the Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases (IGHID) contributes a piece to solving the puzzle of disease and morbidity. With a new academic year underway, read what some of our investigators are working on to improve the health of global populations. Their multi-disciplinary findings will be used to tackle key global health problems. Happy new (academic) year!
“During the upcoming year our group, which includes researchers in the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Public Health, plans to continue our work with the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS)/Women’s Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) Combined Cohort Study (MWCCS). Our research will include evaluations of disparities in care, the effects of HIV on comorbid conditions, such as cardiovascular and neurologic disease, and novel epidemiologic methods. In a separate study this year we plan to begin evaluating a new long-acting investigational drug for preventing HIV infection among women.”
