Biography

Dr. Baeten is a professor in the Departments of Global Health, Medicine and Epidemiology at the University of Washington. His research focuses on epidemiologic and biologic risk factors for HIV-1 and other sexually transmitted diseases, and clinical trials of novel interventions for prevention of HIV-1 transmission. He co-chaired the Partners PrEP Study, a phase III, randomized clinical trial among HIV-1 uninfected heterosexual men and women in Kenya and Uganda that demonstrated pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) provided protection against HIV-1 acquisition. Linked projects included a large observational study of PrEP adherence and laboratory analyses of innate and adaptive immune responses related to PrEP use. Other current projects include a) a multinational phase III trial of dapivirine vaginal ring for HIV-1 prevention in women (MTN-020/ASPIRE, through the NIH Microbicides Trials Network, for which he serves as protocol chair), b) implementation studies of combination HIV-1 prevention in South Africa and Uganda, c) epidemiologic studies exploring use of hormonal contraception as a risk factor for HIV-1, and d) demonstration projects to deliver antiretroviral treatment and PrEP for HIV-1 prevention in African HIV-1 serodiscordant couples.
