Cara Struble, PhD

Research interests
My research experience to date has focused broadly on substance use problems through my work under Drs. Leslie Lundahl and David Ledgerwood. I have assisted in human laboratory research including pharmacology and clinical studies examining substance use behaviors and treatment outcomes associated with Cannabis Use Disorder, Opioid Use Disorder, and smoking cessation while completing my PhD training at Wayne State University. I am particularly interested in understanding cannabis use risks, behaviors, and consequences among the LGBTQ+ population. I plan to apply my training in clinical psychology to better understand the impact of sociocultural factors on treatment outcomes for Cannabis Use Disorder in my work with Dr. Alan Budney. I enjoy baking, hiking, and attending drag performances in my spare time.
