Dr. Shapiro is an Associate Professor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health. His primary research interests are in the prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT) and the reduction of morbidity and mortality among infants born to HIV-infected women. Since 1999, Dr. Shapiro has studied infant outcomes and peripartum PMTCT strategies among 1200 mothers and infants in the Mashi Study in Botswana. He is the principal investigator of the Mma Bana Study, which is evaluating virologic efficacy and HIV transmission rates among 730 women receiving 3 different antiretroviral combinations during pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding. In 2010-2011, Dr. Shapiro will be initiating a new NIH-funded clinical trial to reduce infant mortality among HIV-exposed infants.
