Faculty member reaches publication landmark

CookThis month Professor Robert L. Cook (left in photo) received word from recent Epidemiology graduate Xingdi Hu, PhD (right in photo) that a manuscript on which they collaborated, with Dr. Hu as lead author, had been accepted for publication.  The paper, entitled “Utilization of alcohol treatment among HIV-positive women with hazardous drinking”, will be published by the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment. In addition to the manuscript reflecting productive associations between Epidemiology students and their research mentors, this publication marks Dr. Cook’s 100th peer-reviewed paper accepted for publication. Earlier this year Dr. Cook’s 90th such publication was in collaboration with lead author and recent Epidemiology graduate Taj Azarian, PhD (middle in photo). These two mentees, along with yet another recent grad Wajiha Akhtar-Khaleel, PhD, published five collaborative papers with Dr. Cook in the past year. Congratulations to all of the authors!
