Denise Hien



Ph.D., Teachers College, Columbia University

Denise Hien, Ph.D., ABPP, joined Rutgers University as the Director for the Center of Alcohol Studies and Substance Use Studies, and professor in the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP) at Rutgers-New Brunswick. Recognized as a leader in the field of posttraumatic stress and addictions, her body of work has contributed to the evidence base on effective interventions for individuals with PTSD and substance use disorders. She and her group have conduct programmatic research through single- and multisite clinical trials across the United States in community-based substance abuse treatment settings, with continuous funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse (20 grants total: 6 R01, 1 multisite) for over 20 years. She currently leads an NIDA R25 training grant for translational addiction research for racial/ethnic minority B.S./M.D., M.A. and Ph.D. candidates in the biomedical and social sciences.

She is board certified in clinical psychology and has served as a standing and ad hoc member on NIDA, NIAAA, and NIMH Institutional Review Groups and a health disparities advisory group to the director of NIDA on Asian/Pacific Islander issues. Dr. Hien hopes to increase the center's visibility in shaping the national conversation about traumatic stress and its role in the development and maintenance of alcohol and other substance use disorders. Dr. Hien received her B.A. in psychology from Cornell University, and her M.S., M.Phil. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. She received her postdoctoral training in substance use research at the Division on Substance Use Disorders at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, where she has retained a longstanding appointment, now as adjunct senior research scientist. Over her career, she has served on the doctoral faculties of the Derner School of Psychology at Adelphi University, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and The City College of New York. Within each of these institutions, she has held numerous leadership roles in academic and research administration.
