Dr. Yin’s research is focused on the optimization of HIV treatment and care, especially through prevention of non-AIDS complications of HIV infection and antiretroviral therapy (ART). He has examined the epidemiology and pathogenic mechanisms of HIV associated bone loss in perinatally-infected children, adolescents, and postmenopausal women utilizing novel imaging techniques and translational bone cell assays to investigate dysregulation of bone metabolism associated with HIV infection and ART. Currently, he is investigating the impact of oral immune activation on periodontal health and alveolar bone loss in HIV-infected women. Dr. Yin has extensive interdisciplinary research experience in HIV. He is an active investigator in AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) and the Women’s Interagency HIV Study (WIHS). Dr. Yin is a Co-Director of the Bio-behavioral Core, for the HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies, New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University. Dr. Yin also is an Associate Program Director for the Fellowship Training Program in Infectious Diseases at CUMC.
