  • One in medical anthropology where he has research experience in cross-cultural issues in HIV prevention and intervention, cross cultural research on disabilities, and addiction studies, ethnomedicine (curanderismo), and migrant health in the US
  • The other research focus is corporate anthropology,including research on on cultural models of collaborative research systems, ethnographic explorations of manufacturing systems, reciprocity theory for modern companies and organizational use of network analysis.

Dr. Robert T. Trotter, II is an Arizona Regent's Professor in anthropology. He is a medical anthropologist with 25 years of experience in cross-cultural health issues ranging from traditional healing in Mexican American communities to alcohol, drug abuse and HIV prevention and intervention programs for minority groups in the US and in international settings.

Dr. Trotter has more than 125 publications in scientific books and journals and has conducted research and policy studies for the National Institutes of Health, World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and General Motors Corporation.

He has a commitment to exploring new ethnographic research methods, research design, computer assisted ethnography, and international training in rapid ethnographic assessment, including the RARE and I-RARE programs for DHHS and CDC. His other strong interest is the area of research ethics. 

His publications include books and articles on Mexican American traditional healing, cross-cultural alcohol and drug studies, migrant farm worker health and education, prevention and intervention studies on HIV/AIDS, alcohol, and drug use, cross-cultural applicability research on disabilities and the international classification of disease, and community based research and collaboration.
