My prior research focused on HIV infection, including outcomes of antiretroviral treatment in experienced patients and opportunistic infections associated with AIDS. Currently, my work centers on the history of specific infectious diseases, including HIV, syphilis, and botulism, as well as the history of bacteriology in America. My work places these diseases in a broad historical and social context, and it explores the changing ideas about disease causality, the social and cultural significance and impact of each disease, and the development and limitations of medical therapeutics and technologies.”
