Dr. Kahler is Professor and the Chair of the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences in the Brown University School of Public Health. He received his PhD in 1998 from Rutgers University and joined the Brown faculty that year. Dr. Kahler's work focuses on (a) the development of novel smoking cessation treatments, (b) the etiology and treatment of combined heavy drinking and smoking, and (c) the role of alcohol in the treatment of HIV infection. He has recently been the Principal Investigator on an NIAAA-funded laboratory study on alcohol administration and smoking relapse risk, an NIAAA-funded randomized clinical trial of naltrexone for at-risk and problem drinkers seeking smoking cessation treatment, and an NCI-funded treatment development project to adapt Positive Psychotherapy for use in smoking cessation treatment.
