Susan Graham a trained clinical epidemiologist who has led and collaborated in numerous research projects related to HIV prevention, care, and pathogenesis since 2004, with over 105 publications in peer-reviewed journals. She is also an infectious diseases specialist with over 15 years’ experience providing HIV care and prevention services, including antiretroviral therapy (ART) and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), to patients in the United States and in Kenya. Graham has experience conducting mixed methods research on HIV and mental health, contributing to community-based initiatives to improve care for vulnerable and key populations, and developing and testing interventions to improve health outcomes including ART adherence and HIV test uptake. She currently has two NIH-funded grants: one a stepped-wedge trial of an HIV testing intervention in public and private health facilities in Kenya, and the other an award to develop and test a PrEP adherence and sexual health support intervention for gay, bisexual, and other MSM in Kenya. Her research has included the development of new measures and methods, and generated new data and evidence to support population science. Graham has mentored a number of clinician scientists and trainees in the fields of epidemiology, global health, and psychology.
