The STAR Lab, directed by Dr. Keosha T. Bond , is a collaborative, multidisciplinary research group in the New York State area. The E-Sex Health Lab conducts research projects that involve the use of innovative theoretical perspectives, such as intersectionality, resilience, and social-ecological theories, multiple research methods—qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods and the incorporation of internet technology for dissemination and outreach.  The goal of the E-Sex Lab is to develop culturally appropriate interventions to address sexual inequality among women of all experiences (both trans and cis women).

Topics include: Incorporating eHealth technology for engagement and outreach to increase adoption of biomedical HIV prevention strategies, such as pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP and PEP) for women; exploring trans women and trans feminine individuals use of internet technology for sexual health support; development of education-entertainment sexual health education material; and using photovoice to understand the sexual socialization process among transgender female youth.
