Antonio Morgan-Lopez’s work as principal investigator for multiple National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants has focused on advances in measurement and analysis in behavioral drug and alcoholism treatment contexts.

In addition to the work he has led, he has served as a co-investigator, lead methodologist or director of evaluation on dozens of federally-funded grants and contracts from multiple institutes within NIH, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), U.S. Department of Defense, and the National Institute of Justice, among other federal clients.

Dr. Morgan-Lopez returned to RTI in 2012 after serving as Associate Professor in the L.L.

He currently serves as Associate Editor for the journal Prevention Science and Editor-at-Large for Methodology and Statistics for the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
