Dr. Gebo is affiliated with The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health, Reducing Global Inequities in Burden of Disease, where she has translated individual patient care to larger global health issues. As part of a multidisciplinary group in Baltimore, she has been closely involved with mentoring students interested in global health issues as it relates to infectious diseases. She worked closely with students engaged in research projects such as Cancer in the Hopkins HIV Cohort in the Era of HAART and the Impact of Illicit Drug Use and Substance Abuse Treatment on HAART Adherence. Her work with HIV in the Elderly Population was recently supported by an RO1 Research Grant from the National Institute on Aging, entitled "Clinical Outcomes in Elderly HIV Patients."

    Research Summary

    Dr. Gebo has been actively involved with the HIV Research Network (HIVRN), which is comprised of 18 medical institutions across the United States treating more than 16,000 patients with HIV disease. Each institution assembles data on the clinical and demographic characteristics of its HIV-infected patients. Participating institutions then send the information to the data coordinating center located at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where the information is consolidated into a single uniform database. Dr. Gebo, a coauthor on a study from the sample found that compared to healthy children in the United States, HIV-infected children are hospitalized 10 times more often and have three times as many yearly outpatient visits. Although hospitalization rates for children with HIV were slightly lower than that of HIV-infected adults, they had 30 percent more outpatient visits.

    Other research has involved evidence based practice related to the management of Hepatitis C, HIV in the mentally ill, and racial and gender disparities in receipt of HAART.
