About Us

Our team employs a women’s health, evidence-based lens to research and care for reproductive infectious diseases across the life course.  From team leads to trainees, we are committed to ethical, inclusive research and care. Research areas of focus include: HIV, human papillomavirus, Hepatitis, perinatal infections, the vaginal microbiome, and antimicrobial stewardship.

Collaboration is a cornerstone of our program.  We collaborate extensively with other institutions, networks, clinics, and laboratories to maximize the quality, scope, and impact of our work.

Among many partners, in particular, we work in close partnership with Dr Janet Hill and her microbial ecology and molecular diagnostics lab, the Hill Lab of University of Saskatchewan, Dr Gina Ogilvie and the Global Control of HPV Related Diseases and Cancer Team, researcher Dr Helen Cote, the Oak Tree Clinic of BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre, the Canadian HIV Trials Network, the Canadian Perinatal HIV/AIDS Research Group (CPHSP), and the Gynecologic Cancer Initiative of British Columbia. Our core research team is located at the Women’s Health Research Institute, BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre.

We welcome new collaborations and trainees.
