Research Interests

  • Dr. Wright's research endeavors have led to multiple research grant initiatives including an NIH sub-award and a CDC-led grant for data analysis of maternal-infant dyads affected by opioid use as part of a USF team. Clinically, the PEDI Clinic (where he follows the maternal-infant dyads from prenatal to 5 years of age) was honored as a recipient of the Model Practice of Excellence Award by the AAP for its work with families affected by opioid use. He has participated in a number of collaboratives and panels- including as a subject matter expert for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Maternal-Infant Health and Opioid Use Learning Collaborative as well as a participant in a technical consultation meeting with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for "Effects of Intrauterine Exposure to Synthetic Opioids."
