Anahi Collado, assistant research professor at the Cofrin Logan Center for Addiction Research and Treatment will apply for the $202,404 grant to expand an ongoing project in Baltimore, Md., that addresses smoking addiction and potential interventions for underserved people in low socioeconomic communities. 

The study’s overall aim is to test the effectiveness of a digital working memory training program as a prevention or intervention measure that can support tobacco smoking cessation.
