The Hunter HIV/AIDS Research Team (HART) conducts interdisciplinary, community-based research designed to have a positive impact on the epidemic and on the lives of those infected and affected by HIV.
Our work seeks to better understand the dynamics and determinants of HIV-related risk-reduction and health promotion behaviors and to contribute to both science and practice in the field. In addition, we are committed to research, advocacy, and service that can improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities in all their diversity.
HART is dedicated to providing training to engage and inspire the next generation of HIV researchers and practitioners. We train doctoral and post-doctoral students and run an internship program for undergraduates. In addition, we conduct a series of trainings and technical assistance projects for community-based organizations and providers throughout New York City.
