Dr. Clipman is an Instructor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases. His research rests at the nexus of computational genetics, network science, and infectious disease epidemiology and is focused on leveraging innovative computational and molecular methods to address health disparities among vulnerable and underserved populations. His current work aims to understand the transmission dynamics of HIV and hepatitis C virus epidemics among networks of people who inject drugs and men who have sex with men and seeks to identify targeted intervention strategies to interrupt population-level transmission. Dr. Clipman is the recipient of the 2022 NIH Director's New Innovator Award (DP2) from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. He has a computational biology background and completed a fellowship in Bioinformatics at the National Institutes of Health before receiving his Master of Science in Public Health degree and doctorate in Epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins University.
