Cite Award Support in Publications

Publications supported by the COBRE on Opioids and Overdose must cite the grant number (P20GM125507) and, by law, be submitted to PubMed Central. Please review the NIH Public Access Policy.

Investigators who use COBRE services such as services from our Cores are also asked to acknowledge the grant in any resulting presentations or research publications.

Faculty who are supported by the COBRE on Opioids and Overdose must also acknowledge the grant in all research publications that are related to their role on the grant. Publications that are unrelated to the faculty member’s role with the COBRE may also acknowledge the grant. Although this is encouraged, it is up to the discretion of the researcher or faculty member.

How to acknowledge the COBRE on Opioids and Overdose:

  1. Acknowledge COBRE support in each publication you are an author.
  2. Associate funding (P20GM125507) to your publication.
  3. Submit the manuscript to NIHMS upon acceptance for inclusion in PubMed Central.

Facilities and Resource Statement

The Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) on Opioids and Overdose at Rhode Island Hospital is the first center of its kind to address the opioid epidemic. The Center is funded by a 5-year grant from the National Institute on General Medical Sciences and is directed by Principal Investigator Josiah “Jody” Rich, MD, MPH and Deputy Director Traci Green, PhD, MSc. The Center brings together researchers, policymakers, public health officials, community-based organizations, and scientists from multiple disciplines across Rhode Island to help shape policies and practices that will curb this epidemic. Through leveraging the exceptional talent and accomplishments in Rhode Island, the COBRE on Opioids and Overdose aims to support excellence in research essential to understanding the mechanisms underlying opioid use disorder and developing innovative solutions.

The COBRE is organized into four Cores, each led by experts in their fields from Brown University, Rhode Island Hospital and the Miriam Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island. The Administrative Core led by Dr. Jody Rich oversees the administrative structure and activities of the COBRE. The Data and Research Core led by Brandon Marshall, PhD provides quantitative expertise, methodological knowledge on study designs, and technological resources. The Translational and Transformative Core headed by Susan Ramsey, PhD and Traci Green, PhD, MSc will strengthen translational research in social, behavioral, and clinical sciences, as well as improve study dissemination. The Special Populations Core spearheaded by Curt Beckwith, MD and Timothy Flanigan, MD will assist in the recruitment process and provide guidance in conducting ethical research with vulnerable populations. The long-term goal of the multi-disciplinary Center is to develop and sustain a critical mass of investigators specializing in opioids and overdose, thereby enhancing the competitiveness of affiliated investigators and propelling the field of opioid and overdose research forward.
