ABOUT ME

As a pediatrician, I bring 30-plus years of caring for and about children, adolescents, and families. I've been fortunate to watch the disease I spent most of my career studying, pediatric HIV, become less common and more controlled in the US, and I feel lucky that I played a significant part from the early years (leading studies of several new therapies). But the real fun in pediatrics is getting to know the families, understand what their important issues are, and to be a resource to help my patients have a better quality of life, whether their problem is HIV, recurrent infections, or some unexplained condition.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research has been in the treatment of HIV disease in children. In particular, I've been involved in studies of the use of new anti-HIV drugs to improve HIV in children, since children have distinct issues from those in adults. At Duke, we did the very first studies of AZT (zidovudine) in children, and I've been involved since those early studies. I also do research on the ethics of clinical research, and on issues around conflict of interest in medicine.
