    Please watch "The Hungry Heart" prior to 6/1/22.  https://vimeo.com/ondemand/the...

    Dr. Kushner has asked that all mentees view the documentary film "The Hungry Heart" prior to her talk. It's about 90 minutes, and can be rented on Vimeo for $3.99.

She also asked me to mention that some of the language in the documentary (specifically stigmatizing language) likely does not "hold up" in our current environment, but she believes the documentary as a whole is important viewing.

    Andrew Huhn, PhD., M.B.A.

    My research is focused on understanding the human experience of opioid use and opioid use disorder (OUD). The majority of my work has been in human laboratory studies and clinical trials, and I have leveraged my background in psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral pharmacology to identify risk factors for illicit drug relapse and medication strategies to improve OUD treatment outcomes. These studies cover the continuum of care, including supervised opioid withdrawal and sustained recovery using medications for OUD. Topics of interest include sleep disturbance, drug craving, and diurnal measures of stress and mood. In addition, my work in OUD patients has naturally led me to investigate the tradeoffs between the abuse liability and analgesic efficacy of opioid medications, including research on persons with chronic and/or acute pain. My lab employs diverse methodological approaches to better understand opioid use and OUD, including neuroimaging, ecological momentary assessments, wearable technologies, human laboratory studies, and survey research. Taken together, this research is aimed at improving treatment outcomes directly and evaluating and strategizing macro-level changes to improve healthcare for substance use and related disorders.

    Robin Pollini, PhD, MPH

    Dr. Pollini is a substance use and infectious disease epidemiologist whose research focuses on mitigating the adverse health impacts of injection drug use; these include overdose, HIV, viral hepatitis, and serious injection-related bacterial infections like endocarditis. She uses innovative mixed methods study designs to examine how individual- and structural-level factors influence drug-related morbidity and mortality as well as health services access and utilization among people who inject drugs. Dr. Pollini has been Principal Investigator of several grants funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

    Daniel Ciccarone, MD, MPH
