Central nervous system and HIV infections in Vietnam
Brain infections such as meningitis and encephalitis are highly debilitating diseases, and an accurate diagnostic is essential to give patients the best treatment available. For cryptococcal meningitis, clinical trials focus on prevention, for an early diagnosis, and novel ways to use existing treatments or repurpose old drugs.
Professor of Infectious Diseases
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.
