The Center for Sexuality & Health Disparities (SexLab) conducts applied social research on sexuality-related health disparities. Our studies seek to identify innovative strategies to inform sexual health promotion interventions, including the prevention of HIV/STI infection and transmission, and decrease other sexuality-related health disparities. SexLab also offers opportunities for University of Michigan students to foster and apply research skills specific to sexuality research and to advance their knowledge of sexual health.

Founded in January of 2009, SexLab is directed by Dr. Jose Bauermeister, John G Searle Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education (HBHE). SexLab collaborates with faculty members in HBHE and across the larger University of Michigan community, and with researchers at New York State Psychiatric InstituteColumbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, and University of Puerto Rico.
