GibbProfessor Diana Gibb
Professor in Epidemiology & Honorary Consultant Paediatrician
Medical Research Council Clinical Trials Unit
Diana’s primary interest for nearly 20 years has been paediatric HIV infection, initially setting up and running trials addressing treatment questions in Europe and the UK through the Paediatric European Network for Treatment of AIDS (PENTA) and long-term cohort studies. Since 2000 she has increasingly worked in Africa on multicentre trials addressing strategic questions about how to rollout antiretroviral therapy in both children and adults. She has developed and been involved in running large trials addressing monitoring questions, such as the ARROW (paediatric) and DART (adult) trials in Uganda and Zimbabwe, as well as studies of cotrimoxaozle prophylaxis and of new fixed dose combination solid formulations of ARV drugs for African children in Zambia. Diana contributes to PENTA training courses and does clinical work as a Paediatrician at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London.
