Dr. Mao's research interests are in the natural history and management of pediatric HIV. As an attending physician in the HIV/AIDS program at Children's Hospital, Dr. Mao heads a weekly clinic providing clinical care to HIV-infected children and research study visits for patients enrolled in clinical trials, including pediatric AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) studies and the Women and Infant Transmission Study (WITS), a multicenter, longitudinal study of HIV-infected women and their children.
Dr. Mao also provides pediatric HIV care at two community health centers in Boston and New Bedford, MA, thus providing an opportunity to participate in clinical trials to HIV-infected families and children in these communities. Her practice at a Boston community health center provides a combination of general pediatric and HIV specialty care in a "family clinic" offering integrated services for both HIV-infected parents and their children.
