A main theme of Dr. Brookmeyerâs work concerns statistical and quantitative approaches for measuring the health of populations. Dr. Brookmeyer develops statistical methods and models for tracking and forecasting health and disease. He has worked extensively on the development of methods for tracking the course of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. Dr. Brookmeyer developed the back-calculation method for disease forecasting and developed statistical approaches for biomarker-based methods for ascertaining HIV incidence rates in populations. He has also worked on issues of biosecurity, including epidemic models. His research interests in biostatistics include survival analysis, clinical trial design and analyses, and epidemiological and statistical methods for disease surveillance. Dr. Brookmeyer is currently the chair of the Statistics in Epidemiology Section of the American Statistical Association.

Celentano is a professor and the chair of the Department of Epidemiology, with joint teaching appointments in the Departments of Health, Society, and Behavior and International Health at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, as well as in the School of Medicine. His research integrates behavioral science theory and research with epidemiology, in the study of behavioral and social epidemiology. While originally trained in a chronic disease paradigm (alcoholism and cancer control), he began his research in HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the early 1980s. In this regard, he has worked on some of the major cohort studies (ALIVE, MACS) in HIV epidemiology, as well as conducted intervention research in the United States for heterosexual men and women, injection drug users, and young men who have sex with men. He turned to international research in 1990, when he began a long-term collaboration with Chiang Mai University in northern Thailand. He and his collaborators have demonstrated that a behavioral intervention with young men (military conscripts) leads to a seven-fold reduction in incident STDs and halving the HIV incidence rate. In addition, the role of STDs and alcohol use on HIV acquisition has been shown through his research. More recently, his group has conducted a prospective study of hormonal contraception in relation to HIV seroconversion and human papillomavirus (HPV) incidence, a study with significant family planning policy and health implications. Today, he is the principal investigator of four studies supported by the National Institutes of Health in Thailand, focusing on interventions to influence the association between opiate use, methamphetamine use, and other drugs on HIV. He is the author of over 450 peer-reviewed articles. He is co-editor of âPublic Health Aspects of HIV/AIDS in Low and Middle Income Countries: Epidemiology, Prevention and Careâ (Springer, 2008).
