As a clinical scientist, Dr. Smith has been involved in several lines of research concerning addiction and psychopathology. Before joining UW-CTRI in 1992, Dr. Smith conducted psychological and molecular genetic research on vulnerability to addiction. At UW-CTRI, Dr. Smith has been involved in several studies investigating behavioral and medication treatments for nicotine dependence, gender differences in smoking cessation, measurement of nicotine withdrawal and dependence, and the epidemiology of tobacco use, dependence, and cessation. Dr. Smith's special interest in these studies concerns the role of psychopathology (such as depression) in motivation to quit smoking and as a risk factor for relapse to smoking.
