To address such pressing health challenges in the world as HIV/AIDS and malnutrition in developing nations, Cornell has established an innovative Global Health Program, a collaborative effort between Cornell's Ithaca campus and Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) in New York City. Funded by the National Institutes of Health and Cornell, the program will be the home to academic, research, internship and outreach collaborations related to global health issues across the two campuses.

Dr. Roy Gulick presents the Global Health Lecture Series' first lecture, "HIV/AIDS 2007 -- Where Are We?"

Dr. Gulick is trained in infectious diseases and received his MPH from the Harvard School of Public Health. His research focuses on clinical trials of antiretroviral therapies in HIV infection. Dr. Gulick currently serves as Cornell PI of the Columbia-Cornell AIDS Clinical Trials Unit and Vice Chair, HIV Treatment Strategies Research Agenda Committee of the NIH-sponsored AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG).
