Justin Denny MD, MPHAssistant Professor Health Systems & Policy
Dr. Justin Denny has a faculty appointment in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health as an Assistant Professor in the Health Systems Management and Policy programs. He has also co-taught at least one course in the Public Health Practice programs. In this role, Dr. Denny’s work includes mentoring SPH students and collaborating on research with primary SPH faculty members.
He is also Director of OHSU Global in Southeast Asia which has partnered with Mahidol University and Mae Fah Luang University (MFU) in Thailand in order to help all institutions expand learning and research opportunities. As a result, Mahidol University and OHSU faculty are investigating innovative approaches to the prevention and treatment of HIV, TB and Dengue Fever, and MFU and OHSU faculty are researching the effect of a Thai whole grain rice on the microbiome, cognition and biometric outcomes among school children. These initiatives have afforded OHSU students and faculty access to new colleagues who work at the forefront in these fields as well as the sharing of clinical specimens and information fromrobust databases to further research efforts in Oregon. Thai researchers are benefiting from access to learning from innovators at OHSU and are receiving support with pursing grant opportunities. Now that seed funding for these researchers has been secured, grants are being pursued in order to make this research collaboration more robust and inclusive over time and SPH students are beginning to spend time working alongside OHSU faculty members on these projects.
