 Overview
Dr. Krupa Shah is Assistant Professor and a board-certified geriatrician in the Department of Medicine. She completed her residency training at Baylor College of Medicine and her geriatric medicine fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. Her clinical responsibilities involve caring not only for the general older adult population, but also for HIV-infected older individuals. She is a geriatric hospitalist at Highland Hospital. She holds membership in the American Geriatrics Society where she is also a member of the AGS Public Education Committee.

Dr. Shah has a genuine interest in clinical research. Her current research investigates the feasibility of a behavior intervention in HIV+ older adults and is being supported by a NIH K23 Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award sponsored by the National Institute on Aging (NIA). She also received a KL2 Mentored Career Development Scholar Award sponsored by the University's NIH-funded Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI) for research in HIV and Aging. Other significant grant support includes a NIH Supplemental Award sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Of note, Dr. Shah received a variety of research pilot funds from the John A. Hartford Foundation and the University's Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) and CTSI. Much of her early research was supported from a NIH T32 Training Grant sponsored by the NIA. Dr. Shah also has a research interest with respect to reversing age-related decline in physical function among frail older adults with sarcopenic obesity.

Her research has been appreciated by the scientific community. Dr. Shah has been invited to speak at local and national conferences. She routinely presents her research at national conferences and symposiums. Her work has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, Aging and Disease (Journal), the Journal of AIDS and Clinical Research, and Osteoporosis International (Journal).

Dr. Shah has received several awards from national and local organizations. The American Geriatrics Society, for example, honored her with the Merck/AGS New Investigator Award. She has received multiple awards for her research endeavors from the NIH-funded CFAR and was accepted into the NIH-sponsored Early Career Reviewer Program.
