A molecular virologist and clinical investigator, he received a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Harvard and a degree in Medicine from Tufts University.

Dr. Margolis’ laboratory studies the interaction of HIV with its host, aiming to translate the discoveries in molecular biology and virology to the clinic to aid in the treatment of HIV infection.

As the leader of the Collaboratory of AIDS Researchers for Eradication (CARE), Dr. Margolis aims to pursue a comprehensive collaborative search for approaches to eradicate HIV. He currently leads a large partnership of HIV researchers working to force HIV out of “latency” in order to attempt to kill virus particles that typically lie dormant and hidden from therapy.

In addition, Dr. Margolis is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, the Infectious Diseases Society of America, the American Society of Clinical Investigation, and an editorial board member of the Journal of Virology of the ASM, and the Journal of Infectious Diseases of the IDSA.

Professor Sabin initiated and is one of the Principal Investigators of the UK Collaborative HIV Cohort (UK CHIC) study, a major multicenter study of more than 50,000 people living with HIV in the UK, one of the largest clinical cohorts of people living with HIV worldwide.

Additionally, Professor Sabin works as the principal statistician for the Data collection on Adverse events of anti-HIV Drugs (D:A:D) study, a large international multi-cohort study, which aims to describe the relationship between antiretroviral drugs and cardiovascular disease. She is the co-PI on the POPPY study with Dr Alan Winston, a new UK cohort that aims to describe the clinical and psychological outcomes of the ageing HIV population and the healthcare resources that are used by this population, and is an investigator on the EU-funded COBRA study of co-morbidities in UK and Dutch people living with HIV (with Professor Peter Reiss). She is also a member of the Scientific Oversight Workpackage for the EuroCoord collaboration, a major EU-funded network that involves the majority of cohorts of people living with HIV in Europe.

Her research interests focus on: describing the natural history of infection and identifying prognostic markers for disease progression, describing the response to antiretroviral therapy, and describing the frequency of and factors associated with adverse events of antiretroviral therapy. She is currently working on studies that will investigate the new issues that face the population of people living with HIV as they age, including comorbidities and possible neurocognitive impairment.

Some of her efforts to advance public health policy include the National Summit program, focusing on the implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, the Viral Hepatitis Action Plan and the Bay Area Health Disparities Program.

Dr. Miller was co-founder and chair of the EuroGuidelines Group on HIV Drug Resistance established with the purpose of assuring a common standard of care for patients in all European states. She has also been an active member of several collaborative projects, including the EuroSIDA study. She has published over 90 peer-reviewed publications on HIV treatment outcomes and regulatory strategies for HIV and HCV.

As an internationally recognized leader in clinical HIV research, Dr. Gulick led one of the first studies of three-drug combination antiretroviral therapy, which ultimately redefined the standard-of-care for HIV treatment and lead to significant declines in HIV-related morbidity and mortality.

Dr. Gulick’s research interests include designing, conducting and analyzing clinical trials to refine antiretroviral therapy strategies for HIV treatment and prevention, and assess antiretroviral agents with new mechanisms of action. He also serves as a board member of the International Antiviral Society-USA, and as co-chairman of the Panel on Clinical Practices for Treatment of HIV Infection of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
