Zack Marshall, Assistant Professor

With over 14 years experience in the areas of health and mental health, Zack's practice has focused on working with sexual and gender minority youth and communities, people labelled with intellectual disabilities, and people who use drugs. Committed to transformative social change, his interdisciplinary program of research explores ethics, engagement, and knowledge synthesis with respect to marginalized and underrepresented communities. 

A former fellow with Universities Without Walls 3.0, a national training program for emerging HIV researchers, Zack’s work is supported by grants from CIHR, SSHRC, and the Ontario HIV Treatment Network. He is a member of several Canadian research teams including the REACH Community-Based Research Collaborative Centre in HIV/AIDS, the REACH 2.0 Leadership Team, the HIV Stigma Project, and the Sex/Gender Methods Group, a subgroup of the Campbell and Cochrane Equity Methods Group.
