Kasey Claborn, Ph.D., is a research scientist and licensed clinical psychologist. She is a courtesy assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Dell Medical School and an adjunct assistant professor of medicine at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Claborn received her doctorate in clinical psychology in 2013 from Oklahoma State University and completed her internship at the University of Florida Health Sciences Center. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship at Brown University’s Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, where she crossed-trained in HIV and addictive behaviors at the Alcohol Research Center on HIV. Prior to joining Dell Medical School, Claborn served as a research scientist at Rhode Island Hospital and as an assistant professor (research) in psychiatry and human behavior at Brown University.

Claborn’s research interests broadly focus on the syndemics of addiction and infectious disease. Her research seeks to improve clinical outcomes of vulnerable and at-risk patients through improving care coordination and communication at the systems level and promoting health behavior change at the patient level. She is principal investigator of several NIH-funded studies investigating ways to increase linkage to HIV/PrEP care and adherence to HIV treatment among people who use drugs. Her work focuses on identifying gaps across the health care system to improve access to HIV/PrEP care and substance use treatment among vulnerable populations. Claborn also has expertise in the development of digital health innovations. She works closely with software development teams to develop innovative technology solutions to improve clinic work flows and patient outcomes. She has developed mobile solutions to improve HIV medication adherence among patients, care coordination among treatment providers, and to reduce opioid overdose risk.
