Patient Care Philosophy
I believe that pathologists are an important part of the clinical medicine team, and as such, enjoy working with my colleagues to provide timely and accurate diagnoses to help provide outstanding clinical care. Our goal is to provide state of the art diagnostic services to both the UW and local community of the Pacific Northwest. I am particularly interested in infectious diseases, particularly those that are known to be important to the development of cancers.
HPV, HIV and STDs.
Dr. Kiviat's research focuses on studies of HIV-1, HIV-2 and HPV related cancers, as well as breast cancer, especially in Africa. In addition, she directs projects examining issues related to cervical cancer control both in developing countries and in the U.S. and studies exploring management of women with abnormal pap smears in this country.
