Carl Hart, PhD, is an associate professor in the departments of psychology and psychiatry at Columbia University. He is also a research scientist in the Division of Substance Abuse at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. A major focus of Dr. Hart’s research is understanding complex interactions between drugs of abuse and the neurobiology and environmental factors that mediate human behavior and physiology. Dr. Hart is a member of the National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse and sits on the Board of Directors of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence and the Drug Policy Alliance. His new book, High Price: A Neuroscientist’s Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society is a complex story of scientific achievement in the face of overwhelming odds; it also argues that the United States’ drugs policy is misguided and needs to change. Elizabeth Hohmann, MD, is IRB chair and physician director of the Partners HealthCare Human Research Committees covering Massachusetts General Hospital

Stephen S. Intille, PhD, SM, BSE, is an associate professor in the College of Computer and Information Science and Bouvé College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University. His research focuses on the development of novel healthcare technologies that incorporate ideas from ubiquitous computing, user-interface design, pattern recognition, behavioral science, and preventive medicine. His areas of special interest include technologies for measuring and motivating health-related behaviors, technologies that support healthy aging and well-being in the home setting, and mobile technologies that permit longitudinal measurement of health behaviors for research, especially the type, duration, intensity, and location of physical activity. Professor Intille received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1999, working on computational vision at the MIT Media Laboratory, a master’s degree from MIT in 1994, and a BSE degree in computer science and engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. He has published research on computational stereo depth recovery, real-time and multi-agent tracking, activity recognition, perceptually based interactive environments, and technology for healthcare. In 2012, after 10 years as technology director of the House_n Research Consortium at MIT, he joined Northeastern University to help establish a new transdisciplinary PhD program in personal health informatics. Steven Joffe, MD, MPH, is the Emanuel and Robert
Hart Associate Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. Dr. Joffe attended Harvard College, received his medical degree from University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and received his Master of Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley. He trained in pediatrics at UCSF and undertook fellowship training in pediatric hematology/ oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital. His clinical work is in the area of stem cell transplantation in children. His research addresses the many ethical challenges that arise in the conduct of clinical and translational investigation, both in pediatric oncology and other areas of medicine and science. He is the principal investigator (PI) of studies
