Thai Researcher Named WHO/NIDA/CPDD International Traveling Fellow

The NIDA International Program, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) selected On-anong Saiphoklang, Ph.D., Thailand, as the 2015 WHO/NIDA/CPDD International Traveling Fellow. The award provides partial support for a low- and middle-income country researcher to work with a NIDA-supported researcher and participate in the NIDA International Forum and CPDD meetings. During the two meetings, Dr. Saiphoklang presented her research on exposure to drugs, alcohol risk factors, and weapon carrying among 2,588 Thai students. Dr. Saiphoklang spent her research exchange visit with Linda B. Cottler, Ph.D., M.P.H., University of Florida. The two, whose previous work together was supported by Dr. Saiphoklang’s scholarship from the Thailand Research Fund and Chulalongkorn University, analyzed data for a third paper. Dr. Saiphoklang also took Dr. Cottler’s grant- writing course, worked with a University of Florida resource librarian on references and citations, and prepared a grant application to support research on substance dependence health risks in the general Thai population.
