Dr Angelovich researches the mechanisms which drive inflammatory diseases (such as cardiovascular disease and dementia) in HIV-infected individuals and the elderly. By understanding this progression, Dr Angelovich aims to identify targets for therapeutic intervention and to improve health outcomes for HIV-infected individuals.
Dr Angelovich is currently collaborating with researchers and clinicians from the Burnet Institute, the Alfred Hospital and the University of California to evaluate the mechanisms driving increased risk of cardiovascular disease in HIV-infected individuals. His findings have been published in journals such as the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, AIDS (the official journal of the International AIDS Society), Journal of Immunology and Aging Cell.
Dr Angelovich was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2017 and is based in the School of Health and Biomedical Sciences.
