Caroline Mitchell, MD, MPH

Caroline Mitchell is an investigator in the Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and an assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, where her research focuses on identifying protective mechanisms in the healthy vagina that may decrease the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infections like HIV. She is currently funded through the NIH for a project entitled “Female genital immune response to the vaginal microbiota” and by the Doris Duke Foundation for a project entitled "Developing new tools to examine host-microbe interactions in the reproductive tract."
 
Dr. Mitchell received her MD from Harvard Medical School and her MPH from the University of Washington.

Learn about GYN care, what to expect with breast and pelvic exams, questions to ask your provider, and more.

The 2009 WRI meeting aimed to identify and then prioritize research questions in order to determine the area of focus that would most significantly impact our understanding of HIV disease in women.
