The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Nicotine Addiction (CIRNA)
The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Nicotine Addiction was created in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in 2001. Continuously funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, and other, extramural support, CIRNA investigators conduct interdisciplinary research focused on improving the treatment of nicotine dependence for smokers who wish to quit smoking. The highly collaborative research of CIRNA investigators spans from "cells to society", crossing departments and schools at the University of Pennsylvania and extending to institutions across North America. Details on our, faculty, staff, and opportunities for research participation can be accessed using the links at the top of the page.
