Mentoring the next generation of researchers at the intersection of opioid use disorder and chronic pain

PI: Jessica Merlin, MD, PhD, MBA

Co-I: Megan Hamm, PhD

Project Summary: Research on the management of comorbid opioid misuse/OUD and chronic pain is being outpaced by the clinical need across populations and settings. This K24 mid-career investigator award will support the mentored career development of PhD students, post-doctoral scholars, and faculty from diverse disciplines, particularly women and individuals from backgrounds underrepresented in science, in research at the intersection of these conditions.
