FRANCISCO JAVIER IRIBARREN holds a doctorate in clinical psychology and a master's degree in social welfare and is a member of the UCLA Spanish Speaking Psychosocial Clinic. His professional interests include health care, vulnerable populations, media policy and analysis, medical informatics, and community collaboration. Before joining the CSRC he was a Project Director at the UCLA Center for Community Health, where he focused on identifying the factors that lead runaway youth into chronic homelessness and developing prevention strategies. At the CSRC Dr. Iribarren is developing projects that deal with evidence-based interventions and medical informatics systems, understanding health care access and disparities, media analysis and social policy, and the integration of biomarkers in the social sciences. He is currently involved as an investigator in several projects: hate speech in the media (funded by the Social Science Research Council), access to healthcare among primary Spanish-speaking Latinos (The California Endowment), homelessness prevention (National Institute of Mental Health), and HIV prevention (National Institute on Drug Abuse).
