Dr. Marsha Lopez

Dr. Marsha Lopez’s experience runs the gamut from preclinical behavioral pharmacology (giving cocaine to rats) to military medical surveillance, but her current focus is drug epidemiology (the incidence, distribution, or control of a disease within a population) with an interest in marijuana (behavior, attitudes, policy), polysubstance use (abusing more than one kind of substance) and co-occurring psychiatric conditions (like using drugs and being depressed at the same time.)  While most of Marsha’s extended family lives in Argentina, she lives here with Marco (age 14), Gigi (age 11), Teddy (dog), and Halo (crested gecko). She chose a photo of Halo licking her eyeball as her avatar today.
