    Collapse Overview
    The enhanced longevity of patients living with chronic HIV infection has resulted in an increasing burden of chronic diseases, and while there is growing evidence that HIV infected patients at risk for coronary artery disease at rates of up to two fold higher than the uninfected, the significance of chronic HIV infection in the peripheral vasculature is largely unknown. My principle clinical appointment has been at San Francisco General Hospital, which was at the center of the HIV epidemic in the 1980’s. This research program grew in response to the burden of disease witnessed in clinic on a weekly basis. A cursory review of the literature will show how little we understand about the link between HIV infection and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). My research focus is to bridge the gap in our understanding of the contribution of HIV infection to the development of PAD using a combination of clinical, epidemiological and translational research methodologies.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
