Biology Seminar: Derrick Matthews, PhD

Dr. Derrick Matthews is an assistant professor in the Department of Health Behavior at the Gillings School of Global Public Health. His research explores how social determinants of health facilitate the large disparities in HIV prevention and treatment experienced by Black men who have sex with men (MSM). His focus is on engaging Black MSM communities in all stages of the research process, from descriptive epidemiology to intervention development.

His research agenda also explores the numerous health inequities experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) populations. His work in this area currently focuses on ways to thoughtfully operationalize intersectional discrimination and its effects on health in quantitative research.
