AIDSVu is a free, interactive online mapping site that allows users to view the HIV epidemic at the national, state, and local levels by transmission category, age, race, and sex.
Please join us for lunch as Patrick Sullivan,
Principal Scientist at AIDSVu, leads a demonstration and discussion about mapping the HIV epidemic in the United States followed by a Q&A about how you can put AIDSVu to use in your work and research.
Dr. Sullivan has 17 years of experience in HIV epidemiology, prevention, and behavioral surveillance in the United States and in international settings. He worked in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 12 years, including service as a Branch Chief and Acting Deputy Division Director in the Division of HIV AIDS Prevention. He also has experience in design and oversight of biomedical prevention trials, having served as the Associate Director of Scientific Support for the NIH-funded HIV Vaccine Trials Network, where he was responsible for overseeing the development of HIV vaccine trial sites in developing countries, including African countries.
He is currently the PI of NIH-supported research grants to explain black/white disparities in HIV among MSM, to develop improved methods for online HIV prevention studies, and to pilot a couples-focused HIV prevention intervention for MSM. He also serves as Co-Director of the Emory CFAR’s Prevention Sciences Core.
