Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Drummond is a clinical and translational researcher whose research focus includes characterizing the mechanisms for development of chronic lung disease in HIV-infected individuals. His primary project is an NHLBI-funded study of the pulmonary compartment of smokers at risk for or with COPD and HIV through performance of bronchoscopic alveolar lavage sampling as well as airway brushings. Additionally, Dr. Drummond has been involved in characterizing the longitudinal impact of smoking, HIV infection and tobacco dependence on long-term outcomes related to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the ALIVE (AIDS Linked to the Intravenous Experience) cohort.
