Dr. Elizabeth Brown is a biostatistician engaged in the design and analysis of clinical trials for HIV prevention. She is the principal investigator for the Statistical and Data Management Center of the Microbicide Trials Network, which carries out clinical research on products that may prevent the sexual transmission of HIV. She also conducts research on statistical methods to study the relationship between HIV and cardiovascular disease, as both the AIDS virus and antiretroviral therapy can increase the risk of it. Her statistical research is also employed in the study of mechanisms of tuberculosis latency and reactivation.
