Dr. Powel H. Kazanjian is a Professor of Internal Medicine and the Director of the HIV/AIDS Treatment Program. He is also a Professor of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health and a Professor of History at the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. He has served as Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases since 2005. Dr. Kazanjian received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his Medical Degree from Tufts University School of Medicine. His academic background also includes a Master of Arts (History of Science) from Harvard University in 2003 and a Doctor of Philosophy (History) from the University of Michigan in 2012. He completed his fellowship in Infectious Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital of Harvard Medical School.

After working as an infectious diseases clinician in Rhode Island for five years, he returned to Massachusetts, where he became an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine at Harvard Medical School and the Director of the AIDS Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In 1994, Dr. Kazanjian was recruited to head the HIV/AIDS Treatment Program at the University of Michigan. Dr. Kazanjian continues in this role, and he now teaches an undergraduate course on the history of epidemic diseases and sexually transmitted diseases in the History Department of the University of Michigan.

Dr. Kazanjian’s medical research interests have focused on HIV infection, including outcomes of antiretroviral treatment in experienced patients and opportunistic infections associated with AIDS. Currently, his work centers on the history of specific infectious diseases, including HIV, syphilis, and botulism, as well as the history of bacteriology in America. Dr. Kazanjian's work places these diseases in a broad historical and social context, and it explores the changing ideas about disease causality, the social and cultural significance and impact of each disease, and the development and limitations of medical therapeutics and technologies.
