  About Us

  The Clinical Addictions Research Laboratory (CARL) was incepted in 1997 under the direction of
  Andrea King, PhD, Professor in the Department of Psychiatry.

 The overarching mission of CARL is two-folded:

a). to investigate factors that lead to excessive use of alcohol, tobacco, and other substances, and factors involved in increased risk for the development of substance use disorders

b). to develop more effective interventions in the treatment of substance use disorders, particularly tobacco dependence.

   This web site provides a brief overview of the mission of CARL as well as some background information
   on each of our ongoing research studies. If you are interested in enrolling in any of these studies, links are
   provided for secure online surveys to get you started.
