Annual Lecture:  Other
 
Title:  ODP Early-Stage Investigator Lecture
 
Description:  The Office of Disease Prevention's Early-Stage Investigator Lecture was developed to recognize early-career prevention scientists who have not 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. The award winner is invited, with all travel expenses covered, to give a lecture at the NIH and is offered an opportunity for professional networking with NIH program directors and scientists.

Lecture Title: The Promise and Pitfalls of HIV Treatment-as-Prevention: Quasi-Experimental Evidence from South Africa

Jacob Bor, Sc.D., S.M., 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 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. Prior to his graduate training at Harvard School of Public Health, Dr. Bor worked with an HIV-prevention NGO in Botswana, Lesotho, and South Africa. He is a faculty affiliate of Boston University’s Global Development Policy Center and junior faculty fellow at its Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering. He is a Senior Researcher at the Health Economics and Epidemiology Research Office and a visiting researcher at the Africa Health Research Institute, both in South Africa.
