Abstract: I would like to have a conversation about questions my lab is interested in answering to improve the lives of people living with HIV. With the success of highly effective antiretroviral therapy to treat HIV infection, people with HIV are living longer. An important aspect of this longer life expectancy is that people with HIV are at risk for diseases of aging like heart disease, non-AIDS-related cancers and liver disease. Our group has focused on quantifying this risk, exploring mechanisms driving this risk and testing interventions to reduce this risk.
