Gretchen Birbeck, MD, MPH, DTMH, FANA

University of Rochester

Since 1994, Professor Birbeck has served as a physician, medical educator and researcher in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Her life’s work has been to elucidate the mechanisms of common neurology disorders in the region, identify opportunities for feasible, affordable, evidence-based interventions aimed at preventing or ameliorating neurological illness/injury, and move these interventions forward into clinical trials. Dr. Birbeck's research in the areas of neuro HIV and cerebral malaria have involved care provision and research infrastructure development in remote areas of SSA.
