1. Gastrointestinal tract as a reservoir and site of HIV pathogenesis. We study the impact of HIV in the gut, answering questions related to viral persistence, immune activation, epithelial barrier dysfunction, and their relationship to systemic inflammation, aging, and cancer using observational studies and interventional trials.
2. Prevention of colorectal cancer. The SFGH population often presents with late-stage cancer, particularly among Asians and blacks, with low rates of colorectal cancer screening and late utilization of health care services. We identify barriers to access healthcare / colorectal cancer screening in the safety-net population. In addition to cohort studies, we use mathematical simulation models to identify challenges and best practices for colorectal cancer screening / surveillance.
