    Biography

    Dr. Doran received his B.S. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Illinois-Chicago with support from an American Heart Association Affiliate Fellowship. He completed his predoctoral internship at UCSD, and a postdoctoral National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism fellowship at UCSD with Dr. Mark Myers. Dr. Doran has received funding from the California Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program, NIAAA, and NIDA to study the early stages of cigarette smoking. He joined our faculty in 2008, and is currently Associate Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry and a staff psychologist and Director of Clinical Improvement at the VA San Diego medical center.

    Research Interests

    Dr. Doran’s research focuses on biological and behavioral risk mechanisms that heighten the risk for initiation and progression of substance use, particularly cigarette smoking. Dr. Doran is currently funded by the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program to study the role of impulsivity, drug expectancies, and genetic polymorphisms in cigarette smoking among college students.

    Clinical Focus

    Dr. Doran is a licensed clinical psychologist in California. His clinical interests include smoking cessation, other substance abuse treatment, and psychological aspects of recovery from medical illness and injury.
