Dr. Strickler is internationally recognized for his work on HPV natural history in HIV+ women, which has had a major impact on the recent changes to current clinical guidelines for cervical cancer screening in women with HIV. Prior to his tenure at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Strickler was a Senior Clinical Investigator for 7 years at NCI in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, which he joined after completing his M.P.H. and residency in Preventive Medicine at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Strickler is a long-term member of the U.S. Public Health Service/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Guidelines task force for the Prevention of Opportunistic Infection and Disease (HPV disease subgroup) to set clinical guidelines for disease prevention and treatment of adult HIV+ patients. He was a long-term member of the NCI EPIC study section and received several honors from NCI/NIH for his research regarding HPV and cervical disease among HIV+ women, as well as for his studies of obesity and cancer, each of which have been cited as “Research Highlights” by the Epidemiology & Genomics Research Program (EGRP) of NCI. Dr. Strickler will be presenting on the HPV natural history in HIV+ women and the associated clinical implications.
