Barrot H. Lambdin is a senior implementation scientist within the Behavioral and Urban Health program in our Behavioral Health and Criminal Justice research division. He is also an assistant adjunct professor within the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco, and an affiliate assistant professor within the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington.

Over the last decade, Dr. Lambdin has led implementation science initiatives that have supported and strengthened health systems to more efficiently deliver programs in resource-limited settings. Much of his research has focused on identifying bottlenecks and solutions to the implementation of proven interventions for HIV prevention and treatment in Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and the United States. More recently, he has served as the principal investigator on several initiatives to support the government of Tanzania to improve the delivery of methadone and other harm reduction services to address the emerging crisis of opioid use and injection in the region. Currently, he is the principal investigator on a study to integrate HIV care and treatment within methadone services in Tanzania. He is also serving as a co-investigator on initiatives to understand the impact of the criminal justice system on healthcare access, including the continuum of HIV and HCV services, and the influence of naloxone laws and programs on opioid overdose mortality in the United States.
