Jason joined Burnet Institute after eight years of working in HIV community-based prevention and support in both Toronto and Melbourne.
During his tenure at the Victorian AIDS Council, Jason has been a community partner on several Burnet projects, most notably the Suck It and See HIV seroprevalence study in 2008, and the ongoing Queer as F**k/Being Brendo social media project addressing HIV among gay and bisexual men.
Building on this experience, Jason will be leading the national coordination of the COUNT study, which will be looking at seroprevalence and undiagnosed HIV among gay men in Australian cities.
Jason has an interest in HIV epidemiology among gay and other men who have sex with men (GMSM), and risk practices of young men who have sex with men (YMSM).
