Dr. Crosby will assist the Project Director in the development of a protocol designed to test subjects for HIV infection. He will also create study protocols to meet the demands of institutional review boards and he will assist the PI (Dr. Holtgrave) with the submission of these applications (and modifications) to the IRBs.
