Research Summary

I am a clinical instructor in Department of Hematology-Oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and the principal investigator for the proposed career development award. My research focus has been on HIV oncology, and I am an AIDS Malignancy Consortium (AMC) fellow. As an AMC fellow, I am currently working on clinical trial protocols involving therapeutic HPV vaccines for treatment of anal high-grade intraepithelial lesions (HSIL) and anal cancer. I am also the local site principal investigator for AMC-095, which uses nivolumab and ipilimumab for treatment of metastatic solid tumors in HIV-infected individuals. I have a panel of HIV-infected patients with cancer at San Francisco General Hospital that I am actively treating and/or following. I am certified in high-resolution anoscopy (HRA) and ablative procedures for anal warts and HSIL. I practice at Mt. Zion Anal Neoplasia Clinic. I will also be the HRA provider at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital starting July 2016. I have conducted clinical research in women receiving anal cancer screening, female genital tract HIV shedding, the relationship between disclosure of HIV serostatus and condom use in HIV-infected MSM in Taiwan, as well as outcomes and regional variations in practice and determinants of practice in the management of ART-naïve HIV-infected adults with KS in a national database. Through my previous research projects, I have gained experience in the ethical conduct of research, working collaboratively in teams, communication and leadership skills, and presented abstracts at several international meetings.
