Clinical and Research Work in Uganda on Kaposi's Sarcoma and HIV Infection
Please contact Dr. Jeff Martin martin@psg.ucsf.edu

UCSF’s Dr. Jeff Martin and UCSF colleagues, along with Dr. Edward Mbidde are seeking a student to take on a high level of responsibility in implementing a randomized trial in Kampala, Uganda to address the hypothesis that PI-containing HAART is superior to PI-sparing HAART in promoting Karposi’s Sarcoma (KS) regression.

The Job: The work encompasses the investigation of HIV, Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) infection, and KS. The selected student will work side-by-side with Ugandan physicians treating over 200 people with HIV and managing the day-to-day field work.The student has the opportunity to observe how antiretroviral drugs impact patients and s/he can focus his/her research on HIV, KSHV or KS.

A one-year commitment is preferred, and there may be additional opportunities for a two-month experience.
