Eugene Kroon, MD, Search, Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre, Bangkok, Thailand

Eugène Kroon, MD, received his medical training at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 1996, he was stationed in Bangkok by the late Prof. Joep Lange to help set up HIV-NAT, Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre, an HIV Clinical Research Organization whose trial outcomes contributed to implementation of broader ART access in Thailand. In 2000 Eugène pursued family medicine specialty training in Hawai'i. Following this training, he contributed to the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative teams in South Africa and Tanzania in their efforts to expand access to antiretroviral therapy. He returned to Thailand in 2007 to set up a regional, academically affiliated CRO which conducts clinical trials from Bangladesh to Vietnam in addition to Thailand. In 2012 he returned to exclusively HIV clinical and vaccine research, managing a cohort study in most-at-risk-populations in Pattaya, Thailand and an acute HIV infection study in Bangkok that focuses on early treatment and functional cure research. He is a (co)author on 31 peer reviewed articles.
