Biography

Dr. Wilson is interested in HIV/AIDS research with a particular interest in focusing on the relationship between symptoms and inflammation resulting from factors associated with microbial translocation. My immediate research goals are to prepare and complete a Career Development Award to examine the anti-inflammatory effects of Cannabinoids or cannabidiol (CBD) on HIV-related inflammation resulting from microbial translocation and associated symptoms such as poor appetite and chronic pain among people living with HIV-1 viral suppression. I specifically would like to work toward developing evidenced-based adjunctive strategies to transition of people living with HIV-related chronic pain off of opiates.
