Our studies focus on primary prevention of HPV-related disease through vaccination, and our research group focuses on answering some of the key research questions that have emerged since the development of HPV vaccines:
This longitudinal study of adolescent girls who have received an HPV vaccine, their mothers, and their clinicians, examines girls’ risk perceptions, sexual behaviors and acquisition of sexually transmitted infections after vaccination.Grant support: R01 AI073713Principal Investigator: Jessica Kahn, MD, MPH
This longitudinal study of 11- and 12-year-old girls who have received an HPV vaccine, their mothers, and their clinicians, examines communication among girls, mothers and clinicians as well as girls’ risk perceptions and behaviors after vaccination. Grant support: R01 AI073713 Principal Investigator: Jessica Kahn, MD, MPH
These studies examine how introduction of HPV vaccines impacts HPV rates in a community setting. The studies provide insight into the “real-world” impact of HPV vaccine introduction in a community: both the effectiveness of vaccine introduction in decreasing vaccine-type HPV in vaccinated young women and men, and evidence for herd immunity, demonstrated by a decrease in vaccine-type HPV in unvaccinated young women and men.

This is a global, online Community of Practice (CoP) developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization, which currently has more than 1,200 members from 120 countries. The goals of the HPV Vaccine CoP are to enable health professionals globally to: 1) share knowledge, experience and resources regarding cervical cancer prevention; 2) add their opinions to the global policy and practice dialogue on enhancing cervical cancer prevention programs and establishing HPV vaccination programs; and 3) access strategies for cervical cancer prevention program implementation in low- and middle-income countries.

Dr. Kahn serves on the Therapeutic Leadership Group of the ATN and has been involved in several protocols through this national network of investigators conducting research on adolescent HIV. Recent projects include a clinical trial of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine in HIV-positive young women to examine vaccine safety and immunogenicity, a clinical trial of the vaccine in HIV-positive men to examine efficacy, in collaboration with the AIDS Malignancy Consortium, and studies of oral HPV and other tumor viruses in HIV-infected young women and men.
