Ida is a first year CCB Fellow and Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Yavin Shaham at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). As a CCB Fellow, Ida will study the neural circuitry and mechanisms that mediate incubation of oxycodone craving after abstinence due to negative consequences.
Ida received her Pharm.D. from Uppsala University (Sweden) in 2011 and obtained her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the Karolinska Institutet (Sweden) in 2017. Her Ph.D. work focused on testing potential new treatments in rodent models of alcohol use disorder. During her Ph.D, she also spent 1.5 years at NIDA where she studied whether there is a biological basis for the gateway hypothesis with rat models.
