For three decades, Perry Halkitis’s program of research has examined the intersection of HIV, HPV, and other sexually transmitted infections; drug abuse; and mental health burden, with regard to the biological, behavioral, psychosocial, and structural factors that predispose these and other health disparities in the LGBTQ population. His work focuses on the translation of this knowledge through implementation science research that examines the effectiveness of tailored and adaptive interventions in order to prevent these disparities.
Halkitis is the founder and director of the Center for Health, Identity, Behavior, and Prevention Studies. The center is a training site for the next generation of scholars, and it partners with community agencies to conduct studies for and with the LGBTQ population. Halkitis’ research program has been awarded more than $30 million in grant funding, and he is currently an investigator on four National Institutes of Health-funded studies.
He is actively involved with projects in Athens, Greece, and London, UK.
