Dr. Murphy earned his medical degree from Duke University in 2001.  He completed his residency in 2005 at  Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center and fellowship in 2008 at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital. He also received a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in 2009. Dr. Murphy's overarching interest is improving the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases among impoverished and marginalized populations. Specifically his research focuses on: (1) HIV-infected patients with antiretroviral therapy failure or with tuberculosis coinfection (2) innovative strategies to improve uptake of HAART among HIV-infected patients in resource-limited settings and (3) the epidemiology and management of drug-resistant and emerging infections in low-income and post-conflict contexts.
