The article is the most cited in HIV/AIDS literature. He serves as the principal investigator or co-investigator of several studies, many funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Palella has been on Northwestern’s faculty in the division of infectious diseases since 1992.
