Anders Boyd

Anders.jpgSenior researcher

Anders completed his Master’s degree in Public Health at the University of Minnesota. He continued his doctoral studies at Université Pierre et Marie Curie, which gave way to a PhD thesis considering the various ways to model viral replication and liver fibrosis in HIV-positive individuals with multiple viral hepatitis infections.

He was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship from the French Agency for Research on AIDS and Viral Hepatitis to study the evolution of hepatitis B virus genetic variability in two cohorts of HIV-HBV co-infected individuals in France and Côte d’Ivoire. He then received a second post-doctoral fellowship from Sidaction to further explore the virological, serological, and clinical implications of HIV-HBV co-infection in these two cohorts. He has also worked as a methodologist for a number of projects on topics such as large-scale testing for viral infections, cardiovascular disease, metabolism, antimicrobial resistance, and mental health.   

Anders’ research now focuses on methodological approaches to examining trends in co-morbidities and understanding their determinants in HIV-positive individuals. In addition to his work at SHM, Anders also works at the GGD Amsterdam, where he contributes to several projects on sexually transmitted disease and HIV prevention.
