Dr. Bradley has over twelve years of basic and clinical science research experience in behavioral neuropharmacology and drug addiction. She has extensive training in drug addiction research from Dr. Jonathan Katz at the National Institute on Drug Abuse and from Dr. Nicholas Goeders at LSU Health Shreveport. As part of her graduate training she studied models of human methamphetamine drug-taking behaviors. This research has had a strong impact on how drug addiction is studied and treated and ultimately led to a NIH-funded collaborative grant with the University of Arkansas Medical Center to explore the effects of a methamphetamine antibody.
She is currently studying opioid, benzodiazepine, and marijuana use patterns in the Shreveport-Bossier area to identify risk factors for opioid abuse and to develop treatment plans to prevent opioid addiction.
Dr. Bradley is also an advocate for health and wellness. She is a yoga instructor for LSU Health Shreveport and has been teaching in Shreveport-Bossier for 7 years. She also serves as a faculty mentor for the LSU Health Shreveport Medial Students Against Addiction (MSAA) organization.
