About the Unit: The Lindau Laboratory at the University of Chicago is an interdisciplinary, fast-paced laboratory performing human-level observational, interventional (clinical trials), health services, geospatial and computational/simulation research motivated by a fundamental concern for the principle of justice or fairness in health and health care. The lab is actively growing, presently with 3 concurrent NIH-funded studies (two are new 5 year, R01-funded clinical trials) and funding from AHRQ and other sources. The Lab, funded predominantly and continuously by agencies of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services along with private philanthropy for more than 15 years, currently employs about 15 full and part-time researchers across disciplines including epidemiology, gerontology, anthropology, public health, and health care communications. The lab routinely and widely collaborates across disciplines, University of Chicago units, and with investigators at other institutions including experts in the fields of computer science, social services administration, psychology, geriatrics, oncology public health and other medical and social science fields. In addition to her scholarly work, Dr. Lindau is a practicing gynecologist with specialized expertise in prevalence, prevention and treatment of sexual disorders in women. The work of the lab focuses in two main areas: 1) urban health and population health improvement, with a particular concern for women and older adults living in high-poverty communities and 2) preservation and treatment of female sexual function in the context of aging and cancer and other common diseases. The two main programs of research include the South Side Health and Vitality Studies (CommunityRx, MAPSCorps, Feed1st) and the Program in Integrative Sexual Medicine (PRISM) (Bionic Breast Project, WomanLab, Scientific Network on Female Sexual Health and Cancer). SSHVS is a >10 year collaborative effort led by the Lindau Lab including university researchers and community members that aims to understand how community assets and information and communication technologies can be used to improve health and vitality. The Lab has spun out two companies: NowPow, LLC and MAPSCorps, 501c3, both based in Hyde Park, that are active collaborators with the Lab’s research program.
