Research Summary
The objective of the Centre for Sexual Health and HIV Research is to improve the sexual health of the population by improving the management of patients with HIV infection and other sexually transmitted infections, and by devolpoing effective prevention strategies. Within the Centre, the clinical research group focusses on observational studies, prevention and treatment trials related to HIV infection and its complications and co-infections, hepatitis virus infections and human papilloma viirus (HPV) infection. We collaborate closely with the large clinical service run by Camden Provider Services (Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust), recruiting patients at the Mortimer Market Centre and Archway Centre to randomised clinical trials and other studies. We work closely with the MRC Clinical Trials Unit and the UCL CTU to design and undertake studies. The work is funded from multiple sources including the MRC, Wellcome Trust, NIHR and the pharmaceutical industry.

My particular interests include co-infection with HIV and viral hepatitis (prevalence, transmission, natural history, immunology and response to treatment), and the use of HIV cohort studies (UK CHIC, the MRC Seroconverters Register and the UCL Partners HIV Cohort) to examine treatment outcomes and complications. HPV work includes treatment trials, and the use of HPV vaccines to prevent disease in groups at high risk of acquisition and disease incidence including MSM.
