Professor Oliveto received her PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989 and then conducted postdoctoral studies in the Human Behavioral Pharmacology Laboratory at the University of Vermont. She subsequently held a faculty appointment at Yale University for 13 years and is currently Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Her research focuses primarily on the development of pharmacological treatments for psychostimulant and opioid dependence, including the pharmacogenetics of treatment response and interactions of medications with behavioral interventions. With continuous funding from the NIH since 1992, she has sought to bridge some of the gap between basic and clinical research by conducting both human laboratory studies and clinical trials. She has published more than 65 research papers and currently serves on the College on Problems of Drug Dependence Board of Directors.
