ISAP Researchers' Profiles

Jeffrey J. Annon, M.A.

Jeffrey J. Annon, M.A., MIS/M., is currently facilitating the ISAP Research Training for International Scholars.  The goal for this year-long, non-degree training experience is to provide information to visiting scholars on addiction research as well as familiarize them with information on foundational knowledge on evidence-based prevention and treatment practices currently in use in the United States and other parts of the world. This training is designed for international MDs and Ph.D. who are interested in developing addiction research careers.  Mr. Annon is also coordinating the Vietnam HIV Addiction Technology Transfer Center Network, a SAMHSA project training addiction professionals in Vietnam.  Mr. Annon was recently the Research Coordinator for the Accelerated Development of Additive Pharmacotherapy Treatment Project (ADAPT) at the ISAP Outpatient Clinical Research Center. He has been involved in several CTN studies including the Cocaine Use Reduction with Buprenorphine Study (CURB), START Follow up and the HOPE project (CTN 49, CTN 50). He has done data analysis for the Evaluation, Training and Technical Assistance for Substance Use Disorder Services Integration project. He was past director of the Data Management Center and was a part of the UCLA Methamphetamine Treatment Project, which compared treatments for methamphetamine abuse in five cities in the United States. He was also the Project Director for the UCLA LAAM project, which compared methadone and levo-alpha-acetyl methadol (LAAM) treatment of heroin addicts in Los Angeles. Mr. Annon has been with the UCLA Drug Abuse Research Center (which, with other entities, became ISAP in 1999) since 1990, working on various research projects.
