Smoking

1. Cigarette Smokers Wanting to Quit

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is seeking cigarette smokers who would like to quit smoking for participation in a scientific research study. The study involves free counseling and treatment provided in a comfortable, supportive setting.

Transdermal nicotine patches, an FDA approved smoking cessation treatment, may be provided in the study. Cognitive behavior therapy and ongoing interpersonal support will be provided in order to help volunteers quit smoking. Questionnaires, interviews, MRI scans, and biological measures of smoking will be used to assess the treatment’s effects on mood and the desire to smoke.

Volunteers must be:

  • Right-handed
  • Ages 21-65
  • Able to travel to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for study sessions

If you would like to discuss the possibility of volunteering, please call 410-550-1972 or visit www.smoking-insight.org­. Confidentiality will be maintained for all applicants and participants.

2. Do You or Someone You Know Want to Quit Smoking?

The Smoking Clinic at The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center is currently recruiting adult research volunteers who are interested in trying new cigarettes. This research does not provide treatment and is not for people trying to quit smoking. Research participation requires visits to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center one or two times each week. Scheduling is flexible and you will be compensated for your time.

For more information, please call us at 410-550-5143. All calls are confidential.

3. Have you quit smoking?

Congratulations! We know how hard it is to quit smoking. What we don’t know is how you were successful when so many others are not. That’s why we need your help. 

Your participation in a research study could help others quit smoking, too. If you are 18-55 years old, no longer a smoker, and are willing to participate, we will ask you to:

  • Fill out questionnaires;
  • Have an MRI scan of your brain; and
  • Provide blood and urine samples.

You will be paid for your time and travel.

This study takes place on the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus in east Baltimore and is sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), & U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

For a confidential screening, call 1-800-535-8254. For more information, visit www.ResearchStudies.DrugAbuse.gov.
