FSPH Research Funded in Second Phase of IU Addictions Grand Challenges
Fifteen new projects have been awarded funding as part of phase two of Indiana University's Responding to the Addictions Crisis Grand Challenge. Two of those projects are from Fairbanks School of Public Health researchers: Dr. Xin Li, visiting assistant professor of epidemiology, for "Vitamin D and Opioid Use: From Real-World Data to Clinical Practice," and Professor Ross Silverman, health policy and management professor, for the Indiana Addictions Law and Policy Surveillance Project. The projects -- including the impact of opioid addictions on the labor market, examinations of stigma and a study of how a more effective version of naloxone might be created -- represent the innovative, cross-disciplinary work that is the hallmark of IU's Grand Challenge initiatives. We are proud to have our awesome faculty and their work represented in another phase of the Responding to the Addictions Crisis Grand Challenge!
