Mr. Moran is an Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner (APNP). He has specialized, post-graduate education and training in the treatment of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, and he has completed a Fellowship in HIV Medicine. Additionally, Mr. Moran has received the advanced education and training required to perform high-resolution anoscopies, used in the diagnosis and treatment of anal dysplasia.
Mr. Moran has been involved in the design and implementation of clinical programs targeting anal dysplasia screening and research; to both assist with the triage and treatment of affected adults, and to provide consultation to other healthcare providers. He has provided leadership in developing clinical protocols necessary for anoscopy research, insight into recruitment strategies for target populations, and has provided data safety monitoring to Principal Investigators and study statisticians. Furthermore, from 2014-2016, Mr. Moran held a faculty position at the UCLA School of Nursing, where he provided instruction to Nurse Practitioners. He has been at D.A.P. for more than four years, and we hope for many more.
