Associate Professor Eric Chow is an epidemiologist and biostatistician based at the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre (MSHC) at The Alfred Hospital. He heads the Health Data Management and Biostatistics Unit at MSHC and is an Associate Professor at Central Clinical School, Monash University. He is also an Honorary Principal Fellow at the Melbourne School of Population & Global Health, The University of Melbourne.
A/Prof Chow’s research program aims to improve treatment, prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections (STI), with a particular focus on gonorrhoea and human papillomavirus (HPV). His work focuses on the evaluation of the national school-based HPV vaccination program. He has led several studies looking at the impact of the implementation of the gender-neutral HPV vaccination program (e.g. epidemiology of genital warts and HPV prevalence) and the implementation of time-limited catch-up programme for men who have sex with men (e.g. vaccination uptake). His work on HPV has helped to inform HPV guidelines abroad.
