CLAS Study

Characterizing Low Alcohol Sensitivity in Laboratory and Real-World Contexts, "CLAS Study" for short, is a research study conducted by researchers at the University of Missouri with funding from the National Institutes of Health. The purpose of this study is to increase understanding of factors that can lead to alcohol-related problems in some people. More specifically, the purpose of this research is to test how individual differences in responses to alcohol and alcohol-related cues (for example, pictures of alcohol, or the smell of alcohol) are associated with different patterns of alcohol use and related behaviors. This information will help researchers to understand factors that might put people at risk for developing problems with alcohol, or that might protect people from developing such problems.

The study has three phases, which will take place over the course of approximately 17 months:
