Profile
ABOUT ME

I have enjoyed taking care of children for the past 25-plus years. My research area is pediatric HIV infection, but I have extensive experience with the diagnosis and management of all pediatric infections, so I welcome clinical evaluations in all areas of pediatric infection. I believe it is important to listen well and to communicate carefully with both parent and child, so that I can help families decide what would work best for their child. I have five children myself, so I understand that what might work with one child doesn't always work with all.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on helping to prevent and treat HIV infection in children. I develop and implement clinical trials evaluating HIV vaccines and medications to improve health in children at risk for or infected with HIV. In addition, I work on vaccine studies to prevent other infections in children, including infection with viruses such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), parainfluenza, and hepatitis B virus.
