HIV, AIDS, Kaposi's Sarcoma, Herpesviruses, American Indian/Native American
My HIV/AIDS research concerns several areas:
1) Kaposi's sarcoma and human herpes virus eight, particularly the seroepidemiology of HHV-8 and its shedding in semen and saliva;
2) Other herpesvirus infections, HSV & CMV;
3) HIV in special populations such as youth and people of color, particularly epidemiology and risk behavior.
