My interest and expertise involves infectious complication after transplantation ( kidney, heart,liver or stem cell transplant). I perform pre-transplant evaluation of HIV and non-HIV individuals considered for heart, kidney and liver transplant. I also manage post-transplant infectious complications.  I am a primary investigator of several multi-center clinical trials including novel antiviral agents and HIV to HIV deceased donor kidney transplantation.
