Brandon David Lewis Marshall Manning Assistant Professor of Epidemiology, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology

I am the Manning Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Brown University School of Public Health. I received a PhD in epidemiology from the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia. During my doctoral training, I also worked at the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS. In 2011, I completed postdoctoral training at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health.

Broadly, my research focuses on HIV/AIDS, substance use epidemiology, and the social, environmental, and structural determinants of health of urban populations. My research group currently includes four graduate students, two undergraduate students, a project manager, a senior research modeler, a data analyst, and two interviewers. I am the Principal Investigator of the Rhode Island Young Adult Prescription Drug Study (RAPiDS), an NIH-funded project to examine risk factors for injection drug use initiation among young adults who use prescription opioids non-medically. I am the inaugural recipient of the National Institute on Drug Abuse "Avenir" award, which supports a research program using agent-based modeling to investigate HIV transmssion dynamics among people who use drugs. I am also involved in a number of other NIH and CIHR-funded cohort studies of people who inject drugs, street-involved youth, and men who have sex with men (see Publications and Research sections below). I am also an Associate Editor (Public Health & Epidemiology) of the International Journal of Drug Policy. To date, I have authored or co-authored over 120 peer-reviewed publications and two book chapters.
