Arry DieudonneAs a Pediatric Infectious Diseases specialist trained at the peak of pediatric HIV infection, I have developed a major interest in that disease. Since my fellowship years, we have learned from our patients, we have trained hundreds of physicians and healthcare workers from all over the world including the United States of America, and with my colleagues, we have heavily collaborated in making pediatric HIV infection what it is nowadays, a chronic and manageable disease. Opportunistic infections in HIV-infected patients are my main topic, especially atypical mycobacterial infection.Department of Pediatrics

Soyeon KimMy research interests are aimed at mitigating the public health impact of the HIV/AIDS and the resulting resurgent tuberculosis (TB) epidemics. I have participated in research to evaluate methods of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, co-infections with HIV, prevention and treatment of TB, and TB diagnostics. Much of my research in has been conducted in developing countries, including Thailand, Botswana, and South Africa. Working overseas has also spurred my interest in research capacity building in resource limited countries where infectious diseases are more prevalent.Department of Preventive Medicine & Community Health
