Description: 2018 ODP Early-Stage Investigator Lecture Sponsored by the NIH Office of Disease Prevention

The Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) is pleased to announce Dr. Jacob Bor as the winner of the ODP Early-Stage Investigator Lecture. Dr. Bor is an Assistant Professor and Peter T. Paul Career Development Professor in the Departments of Global Health and Epidemiology at Boston University School of Public Health. His presentation is titled: “The Promise and Pitfalls of HIV Treatment-as-Prevention: Quasi-Experimental Evidence from South Africa.”

Dr. Bor’s research applies the analytical tools of economics and data science to the study of population health, with a focus on HIV treatment and prevention in southern Africa. Current research interests include chronic disease management in low-resource settings; economic spillover effects of HIV treatment; decision-making in HIV-endemic risk environments; population health impacts of social policy; and causal inference in public health research. His work has been published in Science, The Lancet, PLOS Medicine, Epidemiology, and Health Affairs.

The ODP Early-Stage Investigator Lecture recognizes early-career prevention scientists who have not yet competed successfully for a substantial NIH-supported research project, but who have already made substantial, outstanding research contributions to their respective fields and are poised to become future leaders in prevention research.
