Gregory P. Bisson

Dr. Bisson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine's Infectious Diseases Division and a Senior Scholar in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. He is committed to pursuing clinically important research questions in the area of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, focusing primarily on the application of epidemiologic methods to the study of the natural history and treatment of clinically important viral and fungal co-infections as well as on the design of creative public health approaches to the rapid delivery, or scale-up, of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in the developing world.
