We are pleased to announce the funding of three new projects:


Midcareer Investigator Award in Patient-Oriented Research, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, was awarded to Dr. Scott Sherman. Dr. Sherman will be examining waterpipe tobacco use from a behavioral economics perspective and mentoring junior faculty on substance use disorders with a primary focus on tobacco control.


Increasing HIV Testing in Urban Emergency Departments Via Mobile Technology; the project is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the principal investigator is Dr. Ian Aronson. The study will develop and evaluate the acceptability and feasibility of a mobile computer-based intervention to increase HIV test rates in the emergency department at Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital Center.


Metropolitan Trajectories of HIV Epidemics, Drug User and Responses in US Key Populations - the three principal investigators for the study are: Drs. Samuel Friedman, Hannah Cooper and Ron Stall.  This study will examine whether and how HIV/AIDS epidemics and programs affect one another across three key populations: men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs and heterosexuals. The project is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.






CDUHR affiliated investigator, Dr. Barbara Tempalski, was one of the special guest editors for a collection of articles on the conceptualization and measurement of "place" in research on drug use and health. This special issue is part of the May 2014 issue of the International Journal of Drug Policy.

Fact Sheets

Computer Simulation Modeling to Assess HIV Prevention Program in NYC

Computer-based mathematical modeling can provide a clearer picture on how to select strategies to prevent the greatest number of HIV cases in the most economical way. Different interventions, targeting particular groups, produce widely varying numbers of new infections averted in New York City over the next 20 years. Details of the these findings can be found in our latest fact sheet.

Staying Safe: Training People Who Inject Drug to Avoid HCV and HIV Infection

The Staying Safe intervention trained PWID on planning skills to avoid injection-related risks and motivation to avoid sharing injection paraphernalia. With new skills and awareness of safer injection practices, individuals may be effective transmitters of harm reduction activities and strategies in their injection networks.
