David Celentano, ScD, MHS

Bloomberg Centennial Professor David Celentano, ScD, MHS, is the chair of the Bloomberg School’s Department of Epidemiology, with joint appointments in the departments of International Health; Health, Behavior and Society; Health Policy and Management; and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. His research integrates behavioral science theory and research with epidemiology methods in the study of behavioral and social epidemiology and infectious diseases. While originally trained in a chronic disease paradigm (alcoholism and cancer control), he began to focus his research in HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases in the early 1980s. He has worked on some of the major cohort studies in HIV epidemiology, as well as conducted intervention research in the U.S. for heterosexual men and women, injection drug users, and young men who have sex with men. Celentano turned to international research in 1990, when he began a long-term collaboration with Chiang Mai University in northern Thailand.
