Julia Marcus, PhD, MPH is an infectious disease epidemiologist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, and Adjunct Faculty at The Fenway Institute. Her research focuses on HIV, hepatitis C, and other sexually transmitted infections, with a primary interest in the implementation of HIV preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to improve sexual health.
