  1. R34DA053686 (BATCHELDER, ABIGAIL WINSTON) Sep 1, 2021 - Aug 31, 2024
    NIH/NIDA
    Stigma-Treatment Enhanced Incentivized Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) for People with HIV who Inject Drugs (PWHID)
    Role Description: We will assess an evidence-based video-delivered stigma-focused CBT intervention for PWHID in Massachusetts who are not virally suppressed (aim 1). We will then utilize implementation science strategies in a Hybrid Type 1 design to simultaneously conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial to test the feasibility and acceptability of the optimized stigma focused CBT intervention paired with incentivized DOT compared to incentivized DOT alone, both implemented through a tailored mobile app (n=70; aim 2), while rigorously testing the implementation strategy, including scalability (aim 3).
    Role: Principal Investigator
  2. R34DA053686 (BATCHELDER, ABIGAIL WINSTON) Sep 1, 2021 - Jul 31, 2024
    NIH
    Stigma-Treatment Enhanced Incentivized Directly Observed Therapy for People with HIV who Inject Drugs
    Role: Principal Investigator
  3. K23DA043418-04S1 (BATCHELDER, ABIGAIL) Jun 1, 2020 - May 31, 2023
    NIH/NIDA
    Understanding and Addressing Internalized Stigma and Shame as Barriers to Engagement in HIV Care Among Men Who Have Sex with Men Who Use Substances – K23 supplement.
    Role Description: This administrative supplement supports ongoing community-based data collection and study operations related to the active pilot randomized controlled trial designed to improve engagement in HIV care by addressing internalized stigma and shame among sexual minority men with substance use disorders.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  4. K23DA043418 (BATCHELDER, ABIGAIL WINSTON) Jun 15, 2017 - May 31, 2022
    NIH
    Understanding and Addressing Internalized Stigma and Shame as Barriers to Engagement in HIV Care among Men who Have Sex with Men who Use Substances.
    Role Description: Consistent with NIH’s HIV priorities, and aligned with NIDA's priorities, this work will begin to elucidate how stigma is mechanistically associated with sub-optimal HIV treatment engagement. The results will inform the refinement of an intervention aimed at optimizing HIV treatment success, and ultimately viral suppression, among substance using HIV+ MSM sub-optimally engaged in HIV care, a highly vulnerable population.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  5. (Abigail Batchelder) Apr 7, 2017 - Apr 8, 2019
    Harvard University Center for AIDS Research Development Award
    Intersecting Stigmatized Identities & Engagement in HIV Treatment (INSIGHT) Study
    Role Description: Consistent with NIH’s HIV priorities, and aligned with NIDA's priorities, this work will begin to elucidate how stigma is mechanistically associated with sub-optimal HIV treatment engagement. The results will inform the refinement of an intervention aimed at optimizing HIV treatment success, and ultimately viral suppression, among substance using HIV+ MSM sub-optimally engaged in HIV care, a highly vulnerable population.

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.
