Jason Farley is both a School of Nursing faculty member and a nurse practitioner in the Division of Infectious Diseases within the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service. He also holds an adjunct appointment on the faculty at the University of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. His projects include an evaluation of treatment outcomes in patients with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) with a high HIV/AIDS prevalence in South Africa in collaboration with the Medical Research Council of South Africa. In the U.S, he works to assess multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureas (MRSA) colonization and infection among patients with HIV/AIDS in Maryland. A series of smartphone applications that Farley designed to help South African TB patients get and stay linked to care and maintain strict drug regimens (while letting caregivers track them) is being adapted for HIV prevention in Baltimore City as part of a $20 million CDC grant to the Health Department. He also is serving as the principal investigator on a grant exploring adherence to CVD guidelines in providers of HIV care within the Johns Hopkins AIDS Service and is a member of the editorial board of the American Journal of Infection Control.
