Ciara Torres, PhD

Dr. Ciara A. Torres received her B.S. in Biology (’07) from the Universidad de Puerto Rico, followed by an M.A. (’09) and M.Phil. (’10) in Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Studies, and a Ph.D. (’14) in the area of Neuropharmacology from Columbia University. While her dissertation and past postdoctoral research focused on understanding the molecular effects of recreational drugs in animal models, she understands that drug use cannot be reduced to pharmacological analysis alone. Contextual factors such as culture, race and socioeconomic status, are also important to consider. Therefore, she is passionate about helping others, both in the academic and larger community, to think critically about the effects of drugs in and out of the brain. Some of Dr. Torres’ current research interests include investigating the impact of drug-related policies on pregnant women and mothers, whether these policies are based on scientific empirical data and the disproportionate focus on pathology within the field of drug research.
