We are The Coleman Research Group, a team led by Jenell Coleman, MD, MPH. We are based at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, located within the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Division of Gynecologic Specialties.
We are a clinical research group working to advance the field of gynecology through medical innovation, by increasing quality of medical care, and by closing gaps in access to sexual and reproductive healthcare and education. Our team has a number of ongoing and completed projects in the sexual and reproductive health field related to the prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV, menstrual disorders, and adolescent sexual and reproductive healthcare.
