Our Research

We lead an innovative multidisciplinary program of research focused on exploring advanced statistical and mathematical methodologies and apply them to monitor the HIV epidemic in BC. Through this, we aim to create evidence that will inform health system improvements in the care of people living with HIV.

Affiliated with the University of British Columbia, our team actively participates to train the next generation of public health practitioners, researchers, and clinicians. We engage both masters and doctoral students in the Experimental Medicine program and undergraduate medical students through FLEX  and research electives.
