Dr. Clark is Assistant Professor-in-Residence in the Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Disease and Program in Global Health. He is based full time in the Lima, Peru office where his research focuses on new strategies for the control of HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in resource-limited settings in Latin America. Prior to joining the Program in Global Health as an Infectious Diseases Fellow in 2005, he studied History and American Civilization at Brown University and Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed Internal Medicine Residency at Montefiore Medical Center.

He has received a K23 Career Development Award from the NIH/NIMH as well as seed grant funding from the UCLA AIDS Institute, and is a member of the Scientific Review Committee of the NIH/NIAID STI Clinical Trials Group.
