Dr. Brian Dodge a Professor in the Department of Health Promotion Sciences at the University of Arizona Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and the Director of the University of Arizona LGBTQ+ Institute. His research focuses on health and well-being among understudied and underserved lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ+) populations, particularly diverse bisexual individuals in a wide range of global contexts. In addition to authoring and co-authoring over 150 scientific publications, Dr. Dodge has served as Principal Investigator on some of the first National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded research projects focused specifically on bisexual health. He co-chaired the NIH Bisexual Health Research Workshop, sponsored by the NIH Office of Sexual & Gender Minority Research Office (SGMRO). He also spoke at two groundbreaking White House Bisexual Community Policy Briefings in Washington. His work is fueled by the active mentorship of graduate and postgraduate scholars, the use of an intersectional lens, and the translation of research findings into community-based advocacy.
