The Addiction and Innovative Methods (AIM) Lab is Co-Directed by Dr. Stephanie Lanza (Director of the Prevention Research Center and Professor of Biobehavioral Health) and Dr. Ashley Linden-Carmichael (Associate Research Professor of Health and Human Development).
Our lab focuses on high-risk substance use across the lifespan with particular emphasis on adolescent and young adult substance use and combined use of multiple substances. Much of our work uses advanced statistical analysis to model the heterogeneity of substance use at the person- and day-level (latent class analysis), and changes in associations across time or age (time-varying effect modeling). Our team includes highly skilled and motivated post-doctoral and pre-doctoral fellows through the Prevention and Methodology Training (PAMT) program interested in studying patterns, predictors, and consequences of substance use throughout the lifespan.
