Treatment of infectious diseases including HIV and AIDS, fungal infections.
Dr. Powderly has been actively involved in HIV-related clinical research for more than 25 years. His own research originally focused on opportunistic infections, especially fungal infections, including cryptococcal meningitis, candidiasis and histoplasmosis. His initial studies focused on evaluating drug cocktails to identify effective first-line treatment for HIV. More recently, he has been involved in research to understand the long-term side effects of HIV medications, particularly metabolic problems like diabetes, lipid abnormalities and osteoporosis.
