Mark Lurie, PhD, is an infectious disease epidemiologist working on HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections, silicosis and tuberculosis in sub-Saharan Africa. He has studied the role of migration in the spread of HIV in South Africa, examined the evidence for concurrency as a major driver of the HIV epidemic, and examined the impact of antiretroviral therapy on HIV epidemic dynamics in Sub-Saharan Africa. His current work focuses on training the next generation of socials scientists in South Africa able to impact the HIV epidemic, an NIH funded R24 that is a collaboration between Brown and the University of Cape Town, a randomised controlled trial of different interventions for partner notification for people attending STI clinics in Cape Town, South Africa, a sudy aimed at improving men's access to HIV testing and treatment services, and developing and implementing models for school-based HIV prevention in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Dr. Lurie's main research focuses on the following topics:
1. What impact does expanding access to antiretrovial therapy for the treatment of HIV/AIDS have on epidemic dynamics and new infections in South Africa. First through a NIMH funded K01 and more recently through a R01, we aim to quantify the impact of antiretroviral therapy on HIV epidemic dynamics in sub-Saharan Africa. This project is a collaboration between Brown University, the Africa Centre for Health and Population Studies in KwaZulu/Natal, South Africa and Erasmus Medical College in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. We use primary data and mathematical models to estimate the impact of interventions on reducing new infections an the eventual elimination of HIV/AIDS.
2. Can we improve rates of partner notification and reduce the number of new sexually transmitted infections among STI patients in Cape Town. In collaboration with Seth Kalichman at the University of Connecticut and Cathy Mathews at the University of Cape Town and the South African Medical Research Council, we are conducting a 3-arm randomised controlled trial on a brief, single-session, one-on-one intervention aimed at assisting STI patients notify their partners that they may have been exposed to an STI.
3. iALARM: an NIH-funded R01 that examines ways to use health information systems to improve men's access and adherence to HIV testing and treatment services in Gugulethu Township, South Africa.
4. SASH: An NIH-funded R24 in collaboration with the University of Cape Town, aimed at training the next generation of South African social scientists in order to more effetively address the HIV epidemic.
5. Brown University / Moi University Partnership for biostatistics training in HIV. A NIH D43 Fogarty project aimed at improving biostatistics and epidemiology training at Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya.
In addition to the above collaborations, Dr. Lurie also works closely with colleagues at the Agincourt Demographic Surveillance System in Limpopo Province, South Africa (examining issues of migration and health); the Perinatal HIV Research Unit at Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, South Africa (focusing on behavioral issues among a clinical cohort of HIV-infected urban and rural patients); The South African Medical Research Council's Health Systems Research Unit in Cape Town (examining the feasibility of a HIV prevention among a group of HIV-positive patients).
