Time-varying effect modeling for cigarette smoking initiation and marijuana use in adolescents

This project is part of the PAMT fellow, and it is focused in investigating the age-varying associations between nicotine smoking initiation (of regular and e-cigarettes) and cannabis use across developmental time between females and males using Time-varying effect modeling (TVEM).

The people involved in this project are part of the Department of Biobehavioral Health and The Methodology and Prevention Center at the Pennsylvania State University.
