Research Summary/Interests

An internationally recognized researcher in HIV diagnostics, prevention and treatment, Dr. Jackson and his colleagues revolutionized HIV prevention in developing countries and published approximately 200 peer-reviewed papers about HIV prevention and treatment research conducted in the United States, Uganda and China. He is also the principal investigator of the $500 million NIH-funded International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials (IMPAACT) Network. Jackson’s work resulted in new drug development and a project to prevent neonatal HIV transmission. The method has saved thousands of infants from starting life with HIV infection.
