Substance Use and HIV Risk

This project continued Dr. Leigh’s ongoing program of research on substance use and HIV risk behavior, with a Senior Scientist (K05) award from NIAAA. Goals for the five-year period included a) investigating the relationship of substance use to HIV risk behavior from a methodological perspective, incorporating person-level, event- level, and within-person analyses; b) studying the association of alcohol and other drug use to risk behavior in a national sample of adolescents; and d) developing new projects to expand research in both these areas. The career plan also included continued collaboration with local and international colleagues in scientific activities, and expansion of mentoring and science education.
