Carl Lejuez, Ph.D., professor of clinical psychology and director of the Center for Addictions, Personality, and Emotion Research (CAPER), has published over 160 articles and book chapters, served as PI for over $13 million in NIH grant funding, and received Early Career Awards from the American Psychological Association (APA) Division 3 (Experimental Psychology; Applied Category), the APA Division 50 (Addictions), and the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT, formerly AABT). Dr. Lejuez is the founder and current Director of the Center for Addictions, Personality, and Emotion Research (CAPER) at the University of Maryland. He is the Founding Editor of the APA Journal Personality Disorders: Theory, Research, and Treatment, and serves on the editorial board of two other APA Journals (Psychology of Addictive Behaviors and Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology). He currently holds adjunct faculty positions at the Charleston VA (South Carolina) and the Yale Child Study Center. His research is translational in nature applying laboratory methods to understand real world clinical problems and to develop novel assessment and treatment strategies. His research spans the clinical domains of addictions, personality pathology, and mood disorders, and he is most interested in the common processes across these conditions. In conjunction with an active research program, Dr. Lejuez is very committed to student research mentorship with his students publishing at a high rate, competing successfully for NIH fellowships, and obtaining top clinical science internships. In line with this focus, he received the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences Undergraduate and Graduate Mentorship Award in 2006.
