| Peter Selby||Our Leadership Team||MBBS, Medicine, Bombay University, India. MHSc, Public Health Sciences, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.||Principal Investigator ||email@example.com|
Dr. Selby's research focus is on innovative methods to understand and treat addictive behaviours and their comorbidities. He also uses technology to combine clinical medicine and public health methods to scale up and test health interventions. His cohort of 240,000 treated smokers in Ontario is an example.
He has received grant funding totaling over 85 million dollars from CIHR, NIH, and Ministry of Health and has published 38 research reports prepared for the government.
He is the Chair of the Medical Education Council for the American Society of Addiction Medicine. Dr. Selby mentors Fellows in Addiction Medicine and Addiction Psychiatry, junior investigators and medical students. The use of innovative methods to communicate messages makes Dr. Selby a sought after speaker for various topics including addictive disorders, motivational interviewing, and health behavior change at individual and system levels.

|Laurie Zawertailo ||Our Leadership Team||PhD, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada||Senior Scientistemail@example.com|
Dr. Zawertailo’s research interests are in the areas of behavioural and neurobiological aspects of tobacco dependence and treatment, especially in individuals with comorbid 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 comorbid populations.

|Sarwar Hussain ||Our Leadership Team||BSc in Toxicology, MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Toronto||Director of Innovation, Operations & Strategy||Sarwar.Hussain@camh.ca|
Sarwar Hussain is the Director of Innovation, Operations & Strategy at the Nicotine Dependence Service at CAMH. He completed his undergraduate (BSc in Toxicology) and graduate (MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences) education at the University of Toronto. His graduate thesis work investigated behavioral mechanisms of smoking cessation pharmacotherapy. Currently he focuses on implementation and rapid scale-up of technology-enabled solutions to bring treatment to real and virtual patient spaces. This typically involves starting with what works, then innovating variations and new models with emerging technologies, informed by population behavior trends. His approach is to collaborate across disciplines, and engage in appropriate industry partnerships to achieve greater value for patients and increase return on investment for the healthcare system. This work stems from previous involvement in innovating and implementing large-scale treatment delivery initiatives for smoking cessation.
