Dr. Jewell’s arrival as an Assistant Professor at Berkeley in 1981 coincided with the peak of the HIV epidemic in the San Francisco Bay Area. From that moment on he was involved in many studies of the epidemiology of AIDS and subsequently intervention and treatment trials. He will discuss some of the statistical challenges associated with population studies of HIV and how methods developed to study the epidemic turned out to have much broader application.
