The HIV Biobehavioral and Symptom Science Lab is dedicated to conducting and cultivating multidisciplinary basic, translational and clinical research to help adults with HIV live and age well. We use innovative and rigorous research techniques to examine how non-pharmacological approaches prevent and mitigate chronic disease, reduce symptoms, and improve quality of life in people living with HIV.
The PROSPER-HIV Study is a 5-year observational study investigating how physical activity and diet intake impact the symptom experience of adults living with HIV. This study is being conducted at University Hospitals, Cleveland Medical Center; University of Alabama at Birmingham; University of Washington; and Fenway Health.
The Sleep K23 Study is a 3-year study comparing the effectiveness of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and continuous moderate-intensity exercise (CME) interventions on sleep in older people with HIV.
Case Western Reserve University is serving as a site for the International Nursing Network for HIV Research, which is conducting an international study describing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people living with HIV.
