What I do

My research seeks to inform novel therapeutic strategies to cure HIV through better understanding of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of individual and combinations of candidate drugs. Based out of the UCSF Drug Research Unit (DRU), I work with a multidisciplinary team of clinicians-scientists and researchers here at UCSF and across collaborative international networks on design, execution, and analysis of cure-focused clinical trials in people living with HIV. Our ultimate goal is to identify curative strategies to cure the nearly 37 million people with HIV.
