Diana Clarke, Pharm.D., is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in Infectious Diseases at the Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine and Pediatric HIV Pharmacotherapy Specialist at Boston Medical Center. She works in the Pediatric ID clinic and the High-Risk OB clinic where she is actively involved in the management of children and pregnant women living with HIV. Her commitment to pediatrics is demonstrated through her memberships to the WHO Pediatric Antiretroviral Working Group and as a Consultant, Human Resources and Services Administration, HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA) for the DHHS Pediatric and Perinatal HIV Guidelines Committees. Her research interests include neonatal pharmacokinetics of antiretroviral agents and pharmacokinetics of anti-infectives in pregnant women. She is currently Chair of several IMPAACT (International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials Network, NIH) protocols and a member of the IMPAACT Scientific Treatment Committee.
