Dr. Laurie Zawertailo is a Scientist in the Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute and the Addictions Program at CAMH. She is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Toronto.

Areas of Research
Dr. Zawertailo’s research interests are in the areas of behavioural and neurobiological aspects of tobacco dependence and treatment, especially in individuals with co-morbid depression or alcohol use disorders –sub-populations who have an especially high prevalence of tobacco dependence and tobacco-related morbidity and mortality. Dr. Zawertailo utilizes a variety of techniques to approach this research question including neuroimaging, behavioural and cognitive tasks such as cue-induced craving, genetics, randomized clinical trials, and large population-based approaches to smoking cessation. Her goal is to understand the neurobiological processes involved in tobacco dependence in order to optimize treatment outcomes in these specific co-morbid populations.
