HIV, Hepatitis B & C

Dr. Noska’s research interests focus on clinical trials that evaluate new therapeutic agents for Hepatitis B and HIV. She investigates the social determinants of health influencing the care for persons living with HIV, HCV, and/or HBV, and comorbid substance use disorders, homelessness, and/or histories of incarceration.

Dr. Noska and Physician’s Assistant (PA) Jesse Powell are collaborating together on these topics and will soon be opening a Phase 3 trial with the global biopharma company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). They will be exploring a functional cure for Hepatitis B using a new Hepatitis B therapy, “Bepirovirsen.” This is the first time in history that a cure for Hepatitis B is being actively investigated in Phase 3 trials.
