Dr. Jacobson is a clinician, educator, and researcher who has specialized in HIV/AIDS and its complications since joining the UCSF faculty in 1986. His earlier career involved leading multicenter, interventional trials that focused on developing effective treatments for AIDS-associated opportunistic infections. His subsequent research was translational, investigating protective immunity against chronic viral infections, in particular cytomegalovirus (CMV), HIV, and human papillomavirus (HPV). He now teaches medicine residents and medical students, provides clinical care and directs urgent care medical services for the Ward 86 HIV clinic at San Francisco General Hospital, and is the editor for the Ward 86 Medical Management Recommendations posted on UCSF’s HIV InSite website.
