NIDCD welcomes Dr. Trinh Ly to its Clinical Trials Program, which she will co-direct, along with Dr. Steven Hirschfeld. She will oversee the extramural clinical trials program, supporting research in communication disorders, including behavioral, device and therapeutic interventions.

Ly served for 14 years as a medical officer for the Division of AIDS, NIAID. Within the Complications & Co-infections Research Branch, part of the Therapeutics Research Program at NIAID, Ly ensured participant safety and research excellence in international, multi-site clinical trials. She provided leadership and scientific expertise to diverse extramural clinical trials research teams addressing global health issues related to HIV/AIDS, associated co-infections and non-infectious complications. 

Ly planned, implemented and managed the Comprehensive International Program of Research on AIDS (CIPRA) projects in South Africa, Haiti, Senegal, Thailand and Cambodia. CIPRA successfully established the long-term clinical research capacity necessary to conduct clinical trials in resource-limited settings.

Ly earned her M.D. from the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
