Dr. Kent Hutchison is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and Director of Clinical Training at the University of Colorado Boulder He completed his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Oklahoma State University and then subsequently completed an internship at Brown University, where he stayed as a post-doctoral from 1995-1998. After leaving Brown University, Dr. Hutchison accepted a faculty position at the University of Colorado Boulder in 1998. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2002 and Full Professor in 2007. Dr. Hutchison moved to the Mind Research Network in Albuquerque, NM to pursue a program of research combining neuroimaging and genetics in 2007, where he served as the Chief Science Officer for two years. In 2011, he returned to the University of Colorado to help set up the Intermountain Neuroimaging Consortium which involves the operation of two identical MR scanners, one in Albuquerque at MRN and one in Boulder at the University of Colorado. He continues to serve as a liaison between the two organizations. Dr. Hutchison has a long track record of NIH funding and publications. His research combines neuroimaging, epigenetic, pharmacological, and clinical perspectives. Recently, in large part because of the change in Colorado law legalizing cannabis, he has also become very interested in cannabinoids. To that end, Dr. Hutchison has launched a program of research on the effects of cannabis in different patient groups (e.g., pain, cancer, anxiety). One of the primary aims of this research is to better understand how different ratios of THC to CBD impact the immune system, cognitive function, and clinical outcomes.
