Martin Y. Iguchi is a Professor of Public Health, UCLA, and an Adjunct Senior Behavioral Scientist at RAND, where he formerly served as Director of the Drug Policy Research Center. Iguchi is PI of the scientific coordinating center for a multi-city Sexual Acquisition and Transmission of HIV Cooperative Agreement Program funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

His recent publications examine drug courts, how the criminalization of drug use exacerbates health disparities in Black and Hispanic communities, racial differences in marijuana acquisition behaviors that might elevate risk for arrest, motivational interviewing, cost-effectiveness, drug policies, contingency management treatment for chronically depressed cocaine abusers, shaping abstinence in smokers, HIV medication adherence, and prescription drug abuse.
