Summary

Magdalena Cerdá is an Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Opioid Epidemiology and Policy, at the Department of Population Health at NYU School of Medicine. She obtained her doctorate from the Harvard University School of Public Health in 2006, and is a former Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholar. Her research focuses on the effects that state and national drug and health policies have on substance abuse trends, and on the ways the urban context shapes violence. Current funded research focuses on the impact that cannabis laws and opioid policies have on substance abuse, mental illness, and associated health problems in the United States and South America. In addition, she is evaluating the impact that firearm disqualifications based on mental illness and substance abuse criteria could have on population-level rates of firearm-related mortality.

The Center for Opioid Epidemiology and Policy at NYU Langone was launched in 2018 to serve as a central source of research on the United States’ rapidly shifting opioid overdose epidemic. Comprised of a multidisciplinary team of faculty and staff, the center focuses on tracking and predicting trends in opioid morbidity and mortality, evaluating the impact of state policies and social determinants on opioid-related health outcomes, and examining the effects of the opioid epidemic on local communities. By conducting and supporting research in these areas of focus, the center is dedicated to informing evidence-based policies that will prevent opioid misuse and overdose and to training the next generation of researchers in preparation for future epidemics.
