Dr. Amy Justice has conducted research focused on outcomes in chronic HIV infection for over 25 years. Her goal is to use aging with HIV infection as a model for understanding and improving outcomes in chronic disease. She is the principal investigator on the Veterans Aging Cohort Study.
Her research considers the complex roles of aging, symptoms, medical treatment, adherence, patient-provider relationships, disease severity, and medical and psychiatric comorbid illness in determining survival and quality of life for people with HIV infection.
Dr. Justice has studied predictors of survival and quality of life and is expert in the development, validation, and evaluation of multivariable prognostic models. She has published over 200 papers and served on thirty expert panels addressing issues of understanding and improving clinical outcomes in HIV infection.
She is an authority on issues surrounding HIV and aging and has presented on this topic at the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, chaired NIH special emphasis grant reviews, helped draft the first set of treatment recommendations jointly sponsored by American Academy of HIV Medicine and the American Geriatrics Society, and is a member of the Working Group on HIV and Aging for the Office of AIDS Research, National Institutes of Health.
