Alex (Oleksandr) Dubov, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Behavioral Health and Bioethics at Loma Linda University. He earned his PhD in Bioethics from Duquesne University, where his thesis investigated the use of Behavioral Economics to facilitate crucial choices at the end of life. He has worked at Emory University Hospital as a Palliative Care Counselor and at Florida Hospital as a Certified Healthcare Ethics Consultant. Dr. Dubov completed his postdoctoral training at Yale School of Public Health Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS as a REIDS fellow (Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars). At Yale, he was awarded a grant to design a public health HIV prevention program based on preferences of Ukrainian LGBT. This research was also supported by the USAID fund and presented to the Ukrainian Ministry of Health. His research interests are in leveraging new and emerging technologies as innovative approaches for supporting the implementation of combination (biomedical, behavioral, and health system) interventions to prevent HIV infection among groups that are epidemiologically at high-risk for infection and whose prevention needs are complicated by their socially marginalized statuses in their communities.
