Gabriel Chamie, MD, MPH is an Associate Professor of Medicine and a faculty member in the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases and Global Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Chamie has been conducting HIV and TB clinical and epidemiological research in sub-Saharan Africa since 2008. His research interests include community-based HIV and tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis, TB/HIV co-infection, and TB transmission dynamics in settings with generalized HIV epidemics. He is a co-investigator in the SEARCH Trial of a "test and treat" approach in East Africa, and currently serves as Chair of the SEARCH Trial HIV Testing Working Group implementing large-scale, multi-disease community health campaigns and population-wide HIV testing. He is also co-Principal Investigator of the IBIS-Health study, investigating novel incentive approaches to increase HIV testing among men in rural Uganda. He has an active clinical practice in HIV and TB clinics at San Francisco General Hospital.
