Mentoring activities include support of the TL and KL scholars in the CCTS. Dr. Kelly is a clinical behavioral pharmacologist examining drug-behavior interactions and assessing bio-behavioral factors associated with individual differences in drug abuse vulnerability. His current research combines clinical pharmacological and neuroimaging methodologies to examine neurobiologically-based personality dimensions on vulnerability to drug abuse. He is currently the PI of one project and serves as the Scientific Director of the NIDA-funded Center for Drug Abuse Research Translation (CDART), is multi-PI of the KL2 Career Development Program for the NCATS-funded CCTS, is co-I on UL1 CCTS and R01 NIDA grants and is a faculty mentor on three institutional training grants.
