ISGMH Researchers Publish in Top Journals in 2020

Researchers at the Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing (ISGMH) started 2020 with a notable array of publications in top journals. Since the beginning of the year, ISGMH faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and staff have authored papers in Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Pediatrics, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, JAIDS: Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes, and Archives of Sexual Behavior, among others.

“I want to congratulate our postdoctoral fellow Dr. Elissa Sarno specifically for her impressive publication in Journal of Abnormal Psychology, one of the top journals in the field,” said ISGMH Director Brian Mustanski, Ph.D. “ISGMH continues to be a leader in sexual and gender minority health research precisely because our faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and staff are dedicated to conducting rigorous scientific research and advancing the health of LGBTQ individuals and communities.”
