Reducing substance use is a key goal within public health. Recent work has shown that a strong predictor of adolescent substance use is the substance use of their parents. This project will explore whether substance use behaviours are passed from parents to children, and whether we can intervene to improve health in future generations. The student will develop skills in population and genetic epidemiology, longitudinal data analysis, and qualitative methodology.
