Dr. Batista’s research and clinical interests are focused on understanding the relationships between mental illness, especially including addictive disorders, and severe and complex medical illness. Her work in these fields began during her medical training and psychiatric residency at Mount Sinai and while still a resident she began to publish in this area. Together with her mentor, Dr. Mary Ann Cohen, she has authored a book chapter in the Comprehensive Textbook of AIDS Psychiatry (Oxford University Press, 2007), and an ethics article in Psychosomatics (2007) entitled “DNR Versus DNT: Clinical Implications of a Conceptual Ambiguity.” Most recently, she was one of seven authors of a guide for clinicians working with HIV-positive patients, the Handbook of AIDS Psychiatry (Oxford University Press, 2010). Dr. Batista has also given a poster presentation for a project she conducted during her residency entitled “Survey of Current Practice Regarding Marijuana Abuse in Liver Transplantation Patients Prior to Transplantation” at the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine 2008 Annual Meeting. It was for this project that she was awarded funding from the American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education/Janssen Resident Psychiatric Research Scholar Award from 2009 through 2010. In May of 2012, Dr. Batista will be presenting a symposium at the American Psychiatric Association’s Annual Meeting entitled “Trauma, PTSD, and HIV: Psychodynamic and Educational Approaches to Adherence in a Community Medical Setting.”

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
