Dr. Alexander Sokolovsky published a paper in Drug and Alcohol Dependence titled, "Alcohol and marijuana co-use: Consequences, subjective intoxication, and the operationalization of simultaneous use." This paper examines day-level risks of alcohol and marijuana co-use versus single substance use and explores whether different approaches to defining "simultaneous" versus "concurrent" result in additional risk.
Dr. Robert Miranda was a featured speaker in a virtual K99 Grant Writing Workshop organized by the Brown Postdoc Council (BPC) in partnership with the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies at Biomed (OGPS). This workshop was held through Zoom on May 5th, 2020. As research activities have wound down, this is a great opportunity for postdocs to consider writing a grant. This workshop brought together excellent sessions and Q&A with experts, current K99 awardees, and reviewers from Brown.
