Biography:

Dr. Cleveland’s research primarily focuses on the intersection of genetic and environmental influences. His early work demonstrated evocative and active G-E correlations involving received parenting and exposure to peer substance use. His most recent project, gPROSPER, is a collaboration with other Penn State faculty (David Vandenbergh and Mark Feinberg) that adds DNA to the PROSPER prevention study. Analyses of project data have demonstrated how genes moderate the effects of interventions on substance use initiation and escalation across adolescence.
