Dr. David Eddie is a research scientist at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Recovery Research Institute and Center for Addiction Medicine, a clinical psychologist in Massachusetts General Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry, and an instructor at Harvard Medical School. His current research, supported by NIAAA and internal awards from Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard University is seeking to better understand affective and psychophysiological factors that heighten addiction relapse risk. Additionally, Dr. Eddie is conducting research aimed at developing cutting-edge, mobile health (mHealth) interventions driven by wearable biosensors. He is also interested in addiction treatment and recovery processes, as well as drug and treatment policy, and is membership chair for the American Psychological Association’s Society of Addiction Psychology.

A licensed clinical psychologist, Dr. Eddie received his Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University with honors in psychology, and his PhD from Rutgers University, where he conducted research at the Center of Alcohol Studies. Dr. Eddie undertook his clinical residency at Massachusetts General Hospital before completing his post-doctoral training as a Harvard Medical School Livingston Fellow at the Recovery Research Institute.

  1. K12DA043490-03 (David Eddie) Jul 1, 2020 - Jun 30, 2022
    Investigating the clinical and public health utility of a novel physical activity-oriented addiction recovery support service
    Role Description: The program of research is to use mixed methods to assess the acceptability and utility of a best-in-class substance use disorder recovery support app in primary care medical clinics. A secondary goal of this research is to leverage data collected to build a relapse risk classifier algorithm that can portend substance use lapses in real-time. This algorithm, which will ultimately be integrated into mHealth relapse prevention apps, will significantly benefit the field, as currently no such algorithm is publicly available. This research will form the basis for future randomized controlled trials and implementation studies.
    Role: PI
  2. K23AA027577 (EDDIE, DAVID) Jun 5, 2020 - May 31, 2025
    Bringing real-time stress detection to scale: Development of a biosensor driven, stress detection classifier for smartwatches
    Role: Principal Investigator
  3. K23AA027577-01A1 (David Eddie) Jun 5, 2020 - May 31, 2025
    Bringing real-time stress detection to scale: Development of a biosensor driven, stress detection classifier for smartwatches
    Role Description: Alcohol use disorder carries tremendous personal and societal costs, and in spite of best clinical efforts, this disorder is characterized by very high relapse rates following treatment. There is a pressing need for novel interventions that prevent alcohol use relapse, and help individuals achieve sustained remission. This study will develop the algorithms that will enable the biosensors embedded in commercially available smartwatches to detect stress in real time using physiological measures of autonomic arousal, which will ultimately be used to trigger smartphone relapse prevention apps to prompt patients with real-time coaching to mitigate alcohol use relapse risk.
    Role: PI
  4. LUCL4428 (EDDIE, DAVID) Nov 1, 2017 - Oct 31, 2019
    National Institutes of Health Loan Repayment Program
    Role Description: The goal of this Loan Repayment Program award is to support my career development as I establish an independent line of research examining the mechanisms implicated in the development and maintenance of alcohol use disorder.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  5. Livingston Fellowship (EDDIE, DAVID) Jul 1, 2017 - Jun 30, 2018
    Harvard Medical School
    Elucidating the role of cognitive and physiological aspects of affect in alcohol use relapse
    Role Description: The Livingston Fellowship is intended to support outstanding post-doctoral research fellows at Harvard Medical School by underwriting research expenses associated with their work.
    Role: Principal Investigator

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
