Looking back, 2015 was a year of exciting growth and innovation for the IMPACT Program and our broader community at Northwestern University. The University’s 2015 Annual Report, titled “Creating New Knowledge,” highlights some of the diverse achievements of affiliated faculty, in areas ranging from HIV Cure research to the next generation of solar fuels.

Jay Walsh, the University’s Vice-President for Research, writes about this unique environment for research:

“Northwestern is an ‘and/and’ place, where diverse ideas come together in exciting ways. Our community invites and nurtures those who want to make the world better by charting their own path – what we call taking a ‘Northwestern Direction.'”

From the feature on Dr. Mustanski’s contributions to the field of health inequities:

“Mustanski prioritizes his results by using such studies’ findings to inform new services, but reaching young gay and bisexual men through HIV prevention programs can prove challenging. As a solution to this hurdle, Mustanski has pioneered the use of new media and technology. For example, his Keep It Up 2.0 program is an online HIV prevention program developed specifically for diverse young gay/bisexual men.”
