End of Life Research Model for HIV Cure Research



11:00 AM-12:00 PM

The QBI & Gladstone Institutes Infectious Disease and Human Health Seminar Series presents Dr. Davey Smith, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Clinical and Translational Research, Head of the Division of Infectious Diseases and Global Public Health, Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of California San Diego.

Dr. Smith is an infectious disease specialist and prolific translational researcher with a focus of turning lab discoveries into better health. He has published over 360 scientific publications. In 2022 and 2023, Dr. Smith was recognized by Clarivate as being in the top 1% of researchers in the world by scientific citations. Since the pandemic started in 2019, Dr. Smith has been engaged in the international effort to find safe and effective treatments, including being the international protocol co-chair for the ACTIV-2 treatment study, which is a part of the US government’s response to COVID-19. In 2023, Dr. Smith became the Assistant Vice Chancellor of Clinical and Translational Research where he leads a team of scientists to tackle difficult biomedical challenges. Having his breadth of expertise allows him to better understand and overcome scientific and medical roadblocks. A good example of this is his recent work that showed how ChatGPT was better and more empathetic at answering patient queries than physicians (JAMA IM 2023) and how these new AI tools need to improve how a patient feels, functions or survives to be most useful (JAMA 2023).
