  • Associate Professor

    Kathleen Morrow, PhD, is an associate professor of psychiatry and human behavior at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and senior research scientist in the Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine at The Miriam Hospital. She serves as faculty in the Lifespan/Tufts/Brown Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) and as training faculty in the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies (CAAS).

    Her research interests focus on HIV and STD prevention, with a recent emphasis on the acceptability of experimental vaginal microbicides designed to provide woman-controlled HIV prevention options. She has been principal investigator on several NIH research studies, including an R01 designed to develop and evaluate instruments to measure factors related to microbicide use, and a R21/R33 mechanism that funds research within the NIH's Microbicide Innovation Program (MIP). In addition, she has been the principal investigator on a CDC funded Cooperative Agreement designing and evaluating an HIV/STD/hepatitis intervention for young men leaving an incarcerated setting.

    Kathleen Morrow, PhD, a researcher with The Miriam Hospital's Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine, explains how products known as microbicides could reduce the risk of HIV infection, particularly for women.

    Morrow's research, conducted both domestically and internationally, incorporates traditional quantitative evaluation, qualitative methods, and mixed methodologies. Given her expertise in these methods, she mentors postdoctoral trainees and junior faculty, facilitating their ability to develop and evaluate interventions and measurement systems within their own research areas.
