Colloquium: Scott on medicines to treat opioid misuse

Dr. Scott

This week’s seminar in the Biology Colloquium series will be given by Shivley Scott, with the VA Palo Alto Healthcare System. Dr. Scott, who is a guest of the MARC program, studies the use of opioid agonists, such as methadone, in treatment of opioid use disorders, including addition. His talk will be titled "The Role of dose, neurocognitive functioning, and psychosocial factors on medication adherence in opioid agonist treatment patients".

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch Dr. Scott’s presentation starting at the usual time for colloquium seminars, 2pm, via this meeting link: (Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom browser plugin in order to display video.)

There is no Colloquium seminar scheduled next week, due to the spring break recess; plans for future Colloquium seminars while coronavirus transmission prevention measures remain in place will be announced soon.
