Christopher B. Hurt, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). He received his medical degree from the University of Florida in 2003, completed his internal medicine training at Brown University, and then came to UNC for fellowship training in infectious diseases in 2006. He has been a faculty member in the UNC School of Medicine since 2010. Over the past several years, Dr. Hurt has worked extensively on issues related to the expansion of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) services in North Carolina. He established the UNC Infectious Diseases Clinic’s PrEP program in 2014 and coordinates PrEP-related education and outreach efforts of the North Carolina AIDS Training and Education Center (NCATEC), housed at UNC. Dr. Hurt also serves as the site principal investigator for HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) Study 083, the first study to compare oral PrEP to a long-acting, injectable medication (the integrase inhibitor, cabotegravir) for HIV prevention in at-risk men who have sex with men and transgender women.
