Prevention Insights supports multiple research programs in the areas of health behavior, substance use, and mental health. While we primarily focus on translational research, we also conduct basic research and promote evidence-based strategies to improve health and practice.
We conduct research through our analytic unit, the Institute for Research on Addictive Behavior (IRAB). We are always interested in collaborative opportunities to advance knowledge in any of our areas of focus.
