Dr. James Riddell

Description of Research: James Riddell

HIV/AIDS

Dr. Riddell’s main research focus is to find ways of improving the care of patients living with HIV/AIDS. Dr. Riddell has been the Principal Investigator for a variety of NIH studies evaluating the appropriate use of antiretroviral agents as well as pharmaceutical industry sponsored studies to develop new antiretroviral medications. The future goal of the HIV/AIDS program is to become more involved in large clinical trials to the benefit of patients and to contribute to optimizing the clinical care of patients infected with HIV.


INFECTIONS IN TRANSPLANT PATIENTS

Our group has developed a transplant infectious disease consult service to both better serve the clinical needs of these complex patients and provide a platform for clinical research. Currently, a consult service staffed by physicians with a specific interest in infections in the immunocompromised host is consulting on hematopoietic stem cell recipients with infectious complications of their transplant. In conjunction with the Bone Marrow Transplant service, we are developing clinical protocols to manage and prevent infections in this population. This service has been expanded to include recipients of solid organ transplants. Dr. Riddell is also involved in research efforts to improve the management of the infectious complications that can occur after organ transplantation.
