Joel Wertheim, PhD
Assistant Professor, Division of Infectious Diseases
University of California San Diego

Dr. Wertheim studies how HIV transmission networks can be used to improve public health surveillance and explores the potential to improve intervention efforts by directing treatment-as-prevention to those people that network theory predicts are most likely to transmit in the future. He collaborates with public health departments including New York City, Los Angeles County, and the U.S. National HIV Surveillance System.
