  1. Resource Description
    Smoking is the greatest source of preventable morbidity and mortality in the United States. Smoking typically begins during adolescence and continues to escalate into young adulthood where long-term smoking practices and nicotine dependence are established. A variety of new nicotine products have become available in recent years. These novel nicotine products provide adolescents and young adults with many choices and unfortunately, multiple potential pathways to become dependent on nicotine. The Adolescent and Young Adult Program within the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Nicotine Addiction focuses on (1) identifying the factors that influence the use of tobacco and nicotine containing products among adolescents and young adults, (2) identifying subpopulations at an increased risk for the use of tobacco and nicotine containing products, (3) clarifying the causal links between the use of one product and another, and (4) developing and evaluating novel behavioral and pharmacological interventions for nicotine dependence.
