The COBRE on Opioids and Overdose welcomes Dr. Frederick Altice, Professor of Medicine and Public Health at Yale University
“Scaling Up Opioid Agonist Therapies in Ukraine through the Lens of an Implementation Science Researcher”
As a researcher, Dr. Altice’s interests are focused on the interface between infectious diseases (HIV, HCV, tuberculosis) and substance use disorders. Specifically, he is interested in both prevention and treatment issues and has been at the forefront of both behavioral and biomedical intervention research activities, including adaptation into the virtual community.
He is also interested in creation of novel prevention and treatment programs for the treatment of infectious diseases and substance use disorders in vulnerable populations, including people who inject drugs, criminal justice populations, men who have sex with men, transgender women, and both female and transgender sex workers. He is especially interested in novel delivery programs for PrEP, addiction treatment and healthcare using mobile apps and digital interactions.
