Presented by M. Kate Grabowski, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Department of Pathology. Register for the event here.

Dr. Grabowski’s research focuses on the epidemiology, prevention, and control of HIV and sexually transmitted infections in sub-Saharan Africa. Over the last decade, she has made major contributions to understanding the role of mobility and migration on HIV transmission dynamics, impact of HIV prevention and treatment programs on HIV outcomes, and HIV molecular epidemiology. Most of Kate’s research is nested within the Rakai Community Cohort Study, one of the largest and oldest population-based HIV cohorts worldwide. Kate also has broader academic interests in preprint peer review, the ethics of open data science, and the use of pathogen genomics for public health in low-income settings.
