Dr. Ziva Cooper Profiled in The New York World

Studying the Science of Marijuana
March 28, 2014 - March 31, 2014

 If you’ve ever seen the... subway ads calling for drug research volunteers, you may have wondered exactly who is on the other end of the line. A call may lead you to Dr. Ziva Cooper, an assistant professor of neurobiology and research scientist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. She studies the biological impact of illicit drugs, including marijuana. Her cannabis research has looked at such issues as how pot interacts with other psychoactive substances and at ways to help patients benefit from its supposed pain-reducing effects while limiting the possibilities for abuse.
