Associate Professor Mark A Stoové

Head of Public Health Discipline


Associate Professor Stoové has researched the transmission and impact of sexually transmitted infections and blood borne viruses among key risk populations, primarily people who inject drugs and men who have sex with men, for more than 12 years.

His research interests focus on undertaking innovative epidemiological and public health research and disease surveillance, with particular interests in prospective observational studies and the application of record linkage and bio-behavioural data collection to these study designs.

He currently leads a large NHMRC-funded prospective cohort study following people with a history of injecting drug use following their release from prison and is a chief investigator on Australia’s largest prospective study of community recruited people who inject drugs.

Associate Professor Stoové has published over 45 peer-reviewed journal articles and assumes editorial and review responsibilities across several international journals.
