The HIV Prevention Lab conducts research on how to prevent HIV transmission among groups that are at a higher risk for acquiring HIV. We also conduct research on how to promote quality of life among people living with HIV. The mission of the HIV Prevention Lab is to conduct rigorous basic and applied research that can be used to prevent HIV transmission and promote positive sexual and mental health among vulnerable populations and people living with HIV.
