Dr. Daniel Kaul

Description of Research: Daniel Kaul


Dr. Kaul directs the Transplant Infectious Disease Service that provides inpatient and outpatient consultation for patients who have received either solid organ or stem cell transplants. We also work closely with the various transplant groups preparing prophylactic and treatment guidelines. Research interests include the epidemiology of opportunistic infections after solid organ transplantation and the diagnosis and management of viral and other opportunistic infections after stem cell transplantation.


Dr. Kaul is a member of the HIV/AIDS Treatment Program and spent two years training specifically in this area and has been a principal investigator on phase II, III, and IV multi-center trials of antiretroviral agents. Research interests include clinical use of antiretroviral therapies, immune reconstitution disease, and resistance to antiretroviral agents.
