Nicola Newton is a Senior Research Fellow at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC). She leads a program of research developing and evaluating innovative approaches to the prevention of alcohol and other drug use in adolescents. Her main focus is on developing internet-based preventive interventions and improving the sustainability and translation of programs into schools. Nicola has worked extensively on the Climate Schools series for drug prevention which have been adapted for use in the US and the UK. She recently returned from London where she spent two years of her post doctorate fellowship working at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London. This work formed the basis of her most current research examining the efficacy of an integrated approach to prevention by combining universal and personality-targeted interventions.
