Jane M. Simoni, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist and a Professor and Director of Clinical Training in the UW Dept of Psychology. She directs the UW/Fred Hutch CFAR’s Behavioral Science Core and co-chairs HANC’s Behavioral Science Consultative Group. Her research has focused on behavioral aspects of HIV treatment, with NIMH-funded intervention studies in New York City, Seattle, the U.S.-Mexico border, China, Haiti, and Kenya. The Chinese government has recognized her with a “High-End Foreign Expert” Award for 20015-2018. She has over 200 publications, and two of her medication adherence intervention strategies (peer support and electronic reminders) are included among those with “Good Evidence” in the CDC’s DEBI program for adherence interventions. Formerly funded by a K24 award from NIMH, she is an active mentor of doctoral students and early career scientists, serving as primary mentor on several NRSA pre-doctoral and K series awards. Her current work aims to employ computer technology to enhance intervention impact and dissemination and acceptability of long-acting antiretroviral medications.
