His research focuses on the prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, including clinical trials of novel prevention interventions, epidemiologic studies of risk factors for HIV transmission, work at the interface of HIV prevention and reproductive health, and behavioral, translational, and implementation science research aimed at optimizing prevention delivery. He led the Partners PrEP Study and MTN-020/ASPIRE, randomized clinical trials that demonstrated the efficacy of oral tenofovir-based pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and the dapivirine vaginal ring for protection against HIV acquisition; he also was part of the leadership of the ECHO Study, which examined HIV risk related to hormonal contraceptive use in a randomized trial.
