Professor Martin Holt specialises in HIV prevention research with gay and bisexual men. A social scientist by training, he has worked at the Centre for Social Research in Health since 2003. He is currently focused on the impact of new forms of HIV prevention, particularly pre-exposure prophylaxis and treatment as prevention, on community norms, attitudes and practices.

Martin leads the Gay Community Periodic Surveys, the main part of Australia's behavioural surveillance system for HIV. He leads a longitudinal study of the social aspects of biomedical HIV prevention for gay and bisexual men (the PrEPARE project) and the COUNT study of undiagnosed HIV infection. He is a chief investigator on a range of other projects, including:

Martin is actively involved with the HIV sector, gay community organisations, and the Association for the Social Sciences and Humanities in HIV (ASSHH). In 2013 he became a Deputy Editor of the Journal of the International AIDS Society and in 2018 an Associate Editor of AIDS and Behavior. In 2015 he was a Visiting Fellow at the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies in San Francisco. In 2017 he was the national co-convenor of the Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference and in 2018 he was the co-chair of the ASSHH conference, held in Amsterdam, prior to the International AIDS Conference.
