Select from the following:
Dr. John-Stewart's major research interest focuses on advancing HIV prevention and treatment. She directs studies aimed at defining mechanisms of HIV transmission from mothers to infants, HIV prevention in women, and pediatric/adolescent HIV. Particular research interests include prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT) clinical trials, implementation science and evaluation studies, studies of PrEP in MCH and FP clinics, pediatric and adolescent HIV studies, HIV treatment programs and evaluation. Her group also focuses on maternal-child epidemiologic studies in the context of infectious diseases including studies of the mechanism of breastfeeding protective effects, child growth and neurocognitive outcomes, preterm birth, viral infections with EBV, CMV, STIs, and TB. Studies of TB, growth, birth outcomes, and STIs include both women and cihildren living with HIV and those without.
