About the author

Paul Sax is Clinical Director of the HIV Program and Division of Infectious Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. A past Editor-in-Chief of NEJM Journal Watch HIV/AIDS, he left that position in 2014 to assume that role for Open Forum Infectious Diseases, the new IDSA open access journal published by Oxford University Press. He is actively involved in HIV research, clinical practice, and teaching.

Paul lives in Brookline with his wife, Carolyn — a pediatrician at Hyde Park Pediatrics — and they have two children, Joseph and Mimi. Paul knew he was destined to become an Infectious Diseases specialist when, in the early 1980s, he found everything he heard in medical school about the newly identified disease AIDS absolutely fascinating — and also sometimes caught himself daydreaming about cephalosporins. He can be seen riding his bicycle to work down Longwood Avenue, even in the dead of winter, and has continued to love Boston since moving here more than 30 years ago, despite remaining an ardent fan of the New York Yankees.

Here is more about Paul, including his disclosure statement.
