He worked for several years as an implementer, trainer and clinical advisor in a large HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria treatment and prevention program in Nigeria. He rose to become the Associate Director for Clinical Services at the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria, a local implementing partner of the University of Maryland’s Institute of Human Virology (IHV-UMB).

Dr. Jumare’s current research focuses on the burden, characteristics and pathogenic mechanisms for neurocognitive disorders among HIV/AIDS patients in Nigeria. Key accomplishments of this work include characterizing the phenotype of HIV associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND), in addition to demonstrating a likely role for lymphocyte associated virus, HIV subtype differences and some immune activation markers in HAND pathogenesis.
