    Collapse Overview
    As a UCSF faculty member I am honored to demonstrate my passion for STDs through research, teaching, and patient care. I currently serve as the Medical Director for the California Prevention Training Center, which is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to educate providers on best practices in STD diagnosis and treatment. I recently became co-director of the CDC-funded National STD Quality Improvement Center, and am the site PI for the multicenter CDC-funded HPV-Impact project,which monitors the population-level effects of HPV vaccination. I also serve as the Chief of the Office of Medical and Scientific Affairs at the STD Control Branch, California Department of Public Health.

    On a national level I serve as a consultant for the National Institutes of Health Sexually Transmitted Infections Clinical Trials Group and multiple working groups at the CDC. Recently I was a contributing author to the 2015 CDC STD Treatment Guidelines, the United States’ seminal reference on STD diagnosis and treatment.
