Dr. Courtney Nordeck Receives Promotion to Assistant Research Scientist

FRI is pleased to announce that Dr. Courtney Nordeck recently earned her PhD degree in Public Mental Health from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and has been promoted from Research Associate to Assistant Research Scientist. Dr. Nordeck first joined FRI in March 2013. Since that time, she has contributed to multiple FRI studies, from her start as a Research Assistant, to Lead Research Site Coordinator for the NIDA CTN TAPS study (CTN 0059), and Quality Assurance Monitor. As a Research Associate, she worked as Project Manager on several studies, including the Navigation Services to Avoid Rehospitalization (NavSTAR) trial. In her doctoral dissertation, Dr. Nordeck used data from the NavSTAR study to examine hospitalization and substance use disorder treatment among individuals experiencing homelessness. Dr. Nordeck’s prior work has included studies of hospital-based services for people with substance use disorder, low-threshold community-based treatment settings, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on substance use patterns, validation of substance use measures, and interventions for both adolescents and adults. In her role as Assistant Research Scientist, Dr. Nordeck will work with Dr. Gryczynski and other FRI colleagues to study novel service delivery models and treatment outcomes among vulnerable populations. FRI congratulates Dr. Nordeck on her accomplishments, is delighted to welcome her to her new position, and wishes her continued success.
