Laurie J Bauman, PhD is Professor of Pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Director of the Preventive Intervention Research Center. She has conducted multiple NIH-funded studies and randomized trials that applied sociological theory to the prevention of mental health problems secondary to physical conditions in children and their parents. She is currently Principal Investigator of two community-based randomized trials on HIV prevention with youth, and recently completed an NIMH-funded study of adolescent couples to better understand how love, trust, expectations of monogamy, couple communication and relationship salience affect condom use. At the HIV Center, Dr. Bauman is Director of the Intervention Science Core.

With support from NCMHD, she is conducting community-based participatory research with adolescents as the lead decision makers. The adolescents have chosen mental health as the most important health disparity facing African American and Latino inner-city teenagers , and the project is testing the effectiveness of the intervention they developed, BxThunder, in three community sites
