Beth Auslander, PhD

Dr. Auslander's research interests focus on gender and new methods of STD prevention including vaccine acceptance and topical microbicid acceptance. Her recent manuscript on gender's influence on health belief attitudes toward vaccine acceptance was recently accepted for publication. Over the past year, she has been working under the direction of Susan L. Rosenthal, Ph.D. on an NIH-funded project examining developmental and socio-contextual factors related to adolescent girls' perceptions and use of topical microbicides. In the next few months, she plans to design a study investigating the relationship between body image and the acceptance of topical microbicides.
