Addictions Grand Challenges Policy Speaker Series
Dr. Rosalie Liccardo Pacula, Co-director, RAND Drug Policy Research Center
Join us for a talk on opioid addictions related policy -- open to the community.
Rosalie Pacula, Ph.D., is the co-director of the RAND Drug Policy Research Center, a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School and holds many other appointments. Her research over the last 20 years has largely focused on issues related to illegal or imperfect markets (e.g. illicit drug markets), measurement of the size of these markets, the impact they have on behavior (suppliers and consumers), and the effectiveness of policy interventions at targeting market behaviors. In recent work she has studied medical marijuana policies, barriers to the diffusion of buprenorphine (an evidence-based pharmacotherapy for heroin addiction), impacts of formulary management and benefit design strategies on prescription opioid misuse, and microsimulation platforms used to evaluate the effectiveness of alternative alcohol prevention and treatment strategies.
