NCASD Lab Helps Launch New Project on Adolescent Substance Use

Published on July 6, 2012 by

This project is lead by Principal Investigator Cynthia Lakon, Assistant Professor, Program in Public Health, in collaboration with three co-investigators also from UC Irvine: NCASD PI Carter Butts, Departments of Sociology and Statistics, John Hipp, Departments of Criminology Law and Society and Sociology, and David Timberlake, Program in Public Health.

The study will explore why social ties sometimes promote and other times discourage substance use among youth and will also examine what role emotional support, strong emotional ties and peer influence play.

The project also launches the Social Networks & Health Initiative at the Center for Networks & Relational Analysis, which is part of the California Institute for Telecommunications & Information Technology.
