BIO
Jennifer McNeely is a clinical investigator and a practicing general internist.  Dr. McNeely’s research focuses on the implications of substance use for individuals and health systems, and on improving the identification and treatment of addiction in general medical settings.  In 2010 she received a K23 career development award from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIH/NIDA) to study patient self-administered substance use screening in primary care settings. She was Co-Lead Investigator of a NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN) study (CTN 0059) that developed and validated a brief substance use screening tool, and is currently Lead Investigator of a second NIDA CTN study (CTN 0062-Ot) that utilizes technology to address barriers to implementing substance use screening and brief interventions in primary care.  Her prior work has included policy research on models of opioid maintenance treatment; clinical research on an HIV prevention intervention in a drug treatment program; and analysis of large public health data sets to describe the health burden of illicit opioid use in New York City.  Dr. McNeely is also a clinician in the Adult Primary Care and HIV clinics at Bellevue Hospital.
