The Research Coordinator will work full-time on a new 5-year NIH-funded mHealth (social  media based) clinical trial and other ongoing socio-behavioral and clinical studies of HIV prevention/treatment among sexual and gender minority populations, both domestically and abroad in India. Specifically, the new 5-year study will test an online intervention to examine the impact on HIV testing rates and status-neutral linkage-to-care (either PrEP/prevention or HIV treatment) for sexual minority men in Mumbai, India in partnership with a local community based organization. Data will be collected from online surveys, messaging app analytics, website analytics, laboratory testing data, and clinical care records and research visits.


Other ongoing studies include a longitudinal cohort study seeking to identify modifiable mediators of intersectional stigma among Hijra/transgender women and sexual minority men newly diagnosed with HIV based in Delhi and ongoing domestic studies of PrEP use in the Bronx and the US.
