Biography

Dr. Farquhar received her MD at Harvard Medical School. She completed a residency and chief residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in infectious disease at the University of Washington, where she also earned a Masters in Public Health. She currently spends approximately 2 months each year in Nairobi and Kisumu mentoring US and Kenyan trainees and conducting research on HIV-discordant couples, HIV partner services, correlates of immunity against HIV-1, and mother-to-child HIV-1 transmission. Ongoing studies explore provision of partner notification and HIV testing services in a cluster randomized trial of 18 voluntary counseling and testing sites in Kenya, and examine home-based education and HIV testing for male partners of pregnant women. The latter is a randomized clinical trial assessing maternal and child health outcomes that is taking place in Kisumu, Kenya.

She has published more than 130 peer-reviewed papers and is the Director of two international training programs (listed above) as well as the UW Internal Medicine Global Health Pathway. Dr. Farquhar teaches 3 courses in the School of Public Health -- AIDS: A Multidisciplinary Approach, the Responsible Conduct of International Research, and the Integrated Residency Global Health Leadership course. In addition, she sees HIV-infected patients one half-day per week at Madison Clinic and attends in the Infectious Disease clinic and on the wards at Harborview Medical Center.
