CNS and HIV Infections

In the CNS-HIV infections research group we run a programme of science driven by randomized controlled trials powered to relevant and easily understandable clinical endpoints. The main areas of interest are opportunistic infections including cryptococcosis and penicilliosis, TB meningitis, acute bacterial meningitis, encephalitis and HIV drug resistance. In addition to improving patient outcomes, we are interested in innovative approaches to clinical trial design, health economics,  ecology, epidemiology and determinants of pathogenicity of the organisms we study.
