She has been a leader in multicenter studies that established the safety and efficacy of chemotherapeutic agents in the management of HIV-associated KS. Dr. Krown has served as the Vice-Chair for International Activities for the AIDS Malignancy Consortium (AMC) since 2010, and has led the development of the AMC’s international program in Africa, and is now leading the AMC’s effort to expand its international efforts into Latin America.
