FRI Welcomes New Assistant Research Scientist Dr. Karli R. Hochstatter

FRI is pleased to announce that Dr. Karli Hochstatter has accepted a position as an Assistant Research Scientist with the organization. Dr. Hochstatter recently completed a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the HIV, Substance Abuse, and Criminal Justice T32 Fellowship Program in the School of Social Work at Columbia University. Dr. Hochstatter completed her PhD in Population Health Sciences with a minor in Criminal Justice Health (2019), Master of Public Health (2015), and Bachelor of Science (2013) degrees at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Her research focuses on preventing HIV and hepatitis C virus transmission and improving screening and treatment uptake among populations disproportionately burdened by substance use disorders, with a special focus on people who inject drugs and criminal justice-involved adults. She has worked on several NIDA-funded research projects that address the intersecting epidemics of injection drug use and infectious diseases, particularly hepatitis C virus and HIV.

FRI is delighted to welcome Dr. Hochstatter and wishes her a successful career with the organization.
