John Koethe, MD, is an associate professor in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Division of Infectious Diseases, and a physician-scientist pursuing clinical and translational research on cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in persons with HIV. He leads several large NIH and Veterans Affairs-supported studies to characterize the cardiometabolic health consequences of obesity among persons with HIV, factors influencing weight gain on antiretroviral therapy, and how HIV-related changes in adipose tissue promote glucose intolerance, dyslipidemias, and ectopic fat deposits in liver, heart, skeletal muscle and other organs. Dr. Koethe is the Protocol Chair of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group study A5391 to assess the effects of an ART regimen change on weight loss. He also directs the Developmental Core of the Tennessee Center for AIDS Research (TN-CFAR) and is Co-Principal Investigator of the NHLBI-supported Vanderbilt Scholars in HIV and Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep Research (V-SCHoLARS, K12), which supports junior investigators studying the intersection of HIV and comorbid conditions.
