 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
My clinical research interests are focused on women’s health and HIV infection as well as the prevention of transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted Infections to uninfected partners. I was the Principal Investigator for the ARTEMIS ( Assisted Reproduction Therapy and Education Model In Serodiscordants) study, an IRB-sponsored study recently closed for assessing the feasibility and acceptability of assisted reproduction services to reduce HIV transmission risk to uninfected partners in HIV-affected couples desiring a biological child. Much of my research interests are generated from my role as Infectious Disease Director of the Positive HOPE (HIV-OB Program and Education), a multidisciplinary collaboration between the section of Infectious Disease and the Department of OB/Gyn at Boston Medical Center providing prenatal care and prevention of perinatal transmission of HIV infection for all HIV-infected pregnant women followed at BMC.
Future directions for my research include exploring additional harm reduction options for assisted reproduction for HIV-affected couples including PREP ( Pre-exposure Prophylaxis).
