Title: Developing a Risk-Model for Predicting Sexually Transmitted Infections among Kenyan Women at Risk of Acquiring HIV infection while trying to conceive

Dr. Anne Naipanoi Pulei, BSc, MBChB, MSc, MMed (Ob/Gyn), is a lecturer in the Departments of Human Anatomy and Obstetrics & Gynecology at the University of Nairobi (UoN), Kenya. She joined the UoN in 2011 as a tutorial fellow. She completed her Master of Medicine at the UoN in 2017; her thesis looked at the role of micronutrient deficiencies and the occurrence of preeclampsia. Anne also participates in clinical duties and research at the Kenyatta National Hospital, the teaching hospital for UoN. Her clinical work includes care for pregnant women with HIV and implementation of an evolving set of evidence-based interventions for prevention of mother-to-child transmission. Anne has worked closely with Prof. Scott McClelland and Dr. John Kinuthia, her primary research mentors, as a consultant for the Microbiota and Preterm Birth (MPTB) Study. Anne is currently doing her MPH in global health at UW. She plans to use the knowledge gained at UW to advance her HIV research career with a focus on elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. She is also keen on developing linkages for research collaborations and building her own capacity as a research mentor.
