Warren Andiman, MD

  • Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics (Infectious Disease)

Dr. Andiman, has been a member of the Yale Medical School Faculty since 1976.
He founded the AIDS Care Program at Yale-New Haven Hospital in 1987 and is now Director of the Pediatric HIV/AIDS Program at YNHCH. Dr. Andiman has published widely in the areas of clinical and diagnostic virology and pediatric
HIV and AIDS. He was the principal investigator of one of the longest running
longitudinal cohort studies of children born to HIV-infected mothers and for fourteen
years he oversaw the Pediatric AIDS Clinical Trials Program at Yale, a venture
that enrolled nearly 100 children in a wide variety of treatment and natural history
studies. With the help of many colleagues and co-workers he has recently witnessed the eradication of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in New Haven. Dr. Andiman is now devoting his time to the long-term follow-up of HIV infected
adolescents and young adults who were infected perinatally and who are now
transitioning from pediatric to adult health care practices.
