Biography

Andrew Strasser is Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and a member of the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania. He is Principal Investigator of an NCI RO1 to examine how smokers use reduced-nicotine cigarettes and how usage patterns affect toxin exposure. Dr. Strasser’s research on tobacco harm includes the effect that cigarette design features have on smoking behaviors and toxin exposure. Dr. Strasser also conducts laboratory-based research on what makes cigarette advertising and anti-tobacco public service announcements (PSAs) effective. Dr. Strasser was one of six worldwide recipients of the Pfizer-funded, peer-reviewed Global Research Award for Nicotine Dependence (GRAND) program. In this project, Dr. Strasser is investigating the effect of extended Varenicline use on the extinction of smoking behaviors. Results from this study may have health implications on maximizing success of smoking cessation attempts by examining individual smoking patterns.

Research Interest

His research interests include behavioral variations and individual differences and usage patterns in cigarette smoking, with a specific focus on investigating the effect smoking behavior and topography have on biomarkers of exposure. He also conducts research on how advertising and labeling affects risk perception, beliefs, and use of tobacco products.
