Ji-Young Lee, Ph.D., MSPH is a postdoctoral research fellow examining racial/ethnic differences in sexual identity development and its relationship with HIV-related outcomes such as substance use, mental health, and sexual risk, among racially diverse sexual minority men. During her doctoral training at the University of Miami, Ji-Young focused on briding the boundaries that have divided behavioral and biomedical approaches to HIV prevention among sexual minority men who use stimulants.  Specifically, Ji-Young examined the efficacy of a behavioral intervention for optimizing TasP, the associations of positive and negative affective states with biological processes relevant to HIV pathogenesis, and factors relevant to enhancing participation in HIV cure research.
