Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. As a member of the NIH-funded International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trial (IMPAACT) network, I am chairperson of domestic and international protocols investigating the pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenomics and efficacy of new antiretroviral agents and approaches to therapy and early intensive therapy to achieve remission in HIV-infected infants, and Vice-Chair of the Cure Research Agenda Committee. I am Co-Principal Investigator of the NIH-funded Pediatric HIV/AIDS Cohort Study (PHACS), a longitudinal cohort study investigating the long-term effects of HIV infection and ARV (antiretroviral) medications in children and young adults who were born with HIV or born exposed to HIV. The study follows >2500 newborns, young children, adolescents, and young adults. In response to the growth of Pediatric AIDS in international settings, I have traveled to several African nations to train physicians about prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV and the scale-up of antiretroviral therapy for HIV-infected children.[Shorten text]
