Dr. Karli Hochstatter of Friends Research Institute (FRI) has been awarded a R01 grant

Former T32 Post Doctoral Fellow, Dr. Karli Hochstatter of Friends Research Institute (FRI) has been awarded a R01 grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse/National Institutes of Health HEAL Initiative, entitled “Identifying Suspected Drug Overdose Deaths in Near Real-Time Using Data Collected by Death Investigators.” Along with Dr. Hochstatter, the interdisciplinary team of experts include Co-Investigators Drs. Nabila El-Bassel and Smaranda Muresan from Columbia University and Dr. Jan Gryczynski from FRI. In collaboration with the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner, this study will comprehensively evaluate and refine a tool, named the Suspected Potential Overdose Tracker (SPOT), that uses data routinely collected during death investigations to identify accidental drug overdose as the cause and manner of death in near real-time. Near real-time data on overdose deaths will allow for data-driven decision making, the identification of gaps in public health and public safety overdose response preparedness, and opportunities to evaluate overdose prevention interventions, programs, and policies.
