Research Summary

Dr. Dubrow’s research has focused on two separate areas: HIV-related malignancies and glioma. HIV-infected persons are at elevated risk for cancer. Dr. Dubrow's work has focused on determining which cancer types have elevated incidence, describing time trends in incidence, disentangling immune system effects of HIV infection from non-HIV risk factor effects, and understanding relationships between cumulative and current measures of CD4 count, HIV RNA level, and antiretroviral therapy and cancer risk. With respect to glioma, Dr. Dubrow has published on its descriptive epidemiology, dietary and genetic risk factors, and outcomes. In a new phase of his career, Dr. Dubrow is currently developing scholarly work on climate change and health.
