Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Dr. Zolopa’s research applies a variety of clinical epidemiologic methods in an effort to optimize antiretroviral therapy and understand the impact of drug resistance on response to ARV. Areas of focus include the clinical application of resistance testing in optimizing antiretroviral therapy, clinical cohorts, trials of antiretroviral therapies and population-based epidemiologic evaluation of HIV resistance and efficacy of ARV therapy. As the Principal Investigator of Stanford's NIH sponsored AIDS Clinical Trials Unit Dr. Zolopa is engaged in a variety of clinical trials focused on the optimization of ART both in the US and in income limited settings.
More recently studies focused on premature aging in HIV infected popultaions. This work will involve detailed immunologic evaluations and evaluation of end organ complications including heart disease, bone disease, renal disease and neuro-cognitive decline.
