Virginia Triant, MD, MPH is Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a faculty member in the Infectious Diseases and General Internal Medicine Divisions at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Triant earned her MD from the Yale School of Medicine. She is a practicing infectious diseases clinician in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Her research interests are in the area of clinical epidemiology/population health/outcomes and focus on the intersection between HIV and non-communicable disease complications, with a particular interest in cardiovascular disease. She developed and directs an HIV longitudinal clinical care cohort using data from a Partners HealthCare System-based data registry. Utilizing this cohort, she has led studies on HIV in relation to cardiovascular and metabolic outcomes, risk factors, prevention, risk prediction, and management. The overall goal of her research is to characterize the long-term medical complications of HIV disease to design and implement treatment and preventive strategies across diverse clinical settings.
