In 2014, he was selected to join the National Academy of Engineering’s Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, which brings together 100 of the nation’s leading engineers between the ages of 30-45 from industry, government, and academia to discuss cutting-edge engineering research. Dr. Quanbeck’s research draws upon concepts from systems engineering in developing innovative approaches to the implementation of evidence-based practices in healthcare. His research focuses specifically on the prevention and treatment of substance use disorders in primary care settings. He is the principal investigator on two grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse: one is an R34 clinical trial planning grant aimed at promoting the adoption of clinical guidelines for opioid prescribing in primary care. The other is a mentored research scientist career award focused on the adoption of an evidence-based mobile health technology for substance use treatment in primary care settings. He has authored 25 peer-reviewed papers.
