Research Description

1. Psychiatric aspects of HIV. Robert Boland was a collaborator on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-sponsored HERS (HIV Epidemiologic Research Study) grant, which was designed to study the natural course of HIV infection in women with HIV. His role was to concentrate on the psychiatric aspects of HIV infection, particularly the role of depression in quality of life and the progression of disease.

2. Teaching with technology. Currently, Robert Boland is involved in the development of automated interactive technologies, both CD-ROM and web based, as aids in teaching psychopathology and psychopharmacology. His most recent project, currently development, is a use of web based didactic materials as a substitute for traditional lecturing, with a transition from live lectures to more interactive learning techniques (case based learning, or the use of games in the classroom, for example).
