Mitchell R. Lunn is an assistant professor of medicine and epidemiology, and population health at Stanford University School of Medicine. His research characterizes the health and well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. Using existing and emerging technologies, Lunn focuses on improving the understanding of the factors that positively and negatively influence LGBTQ health, including research on LGBTQ health disparities, societal experiences (in and out of health care), provider education about LGBTQ health and institutional climate.
He co-directs the Population Research in Identity and Disparities for Equality (PRIDE) Study – a national, online, prospective, longitudinal, general health cohort study of over 21,000 LGBTQ individuals that employs innovative technologies to bridge research gaps in the health of these medically underserved and vulnerable populations. He also co-directs PRIDEnet, a national, participant-powered, community-engaged research network of LGBTQ people that engages LGBTQ communities at all stages of the biomedical research process. PRIDEnet conducts national community engagement for the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program, a national, federal cohort study aiming to enroll more than one million people.
