Dr. Shariq Haider is an infectious disease specialist with research interests including infections in immunocompromised hosts such as HIV, cancer patients, and bone marrow transplant patients. Much of Dr. Haider’s research includes studies on: 1) novel antiretroviral therapy in naïve and experienced HIV patients; 2) the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of HCV coinfection in HIV infected patients; 3) antifungal therapies in neutropenic hosts; 4) improving diagnostic methods in invasive fungal infections; and 5) novel antibacterial therapies. He is a co-investigator for the CIHR Canadian HIV Trials Network (CTN 264), which is investigating the relationship between access to food for people co-infected with HIV and HCV and behavioural outcomes, and CTN 222, which is examining the reasons for more rapid progression of liver disease in people co-infected with HIV and HCV.
