Dr. Carrico's ICARUS laboratory aims to develop and test interventions that address the biopsychosocial vulnerabilities to optimizing HIV/AIDS prevention, addressing substance use and misuse, and supporting cancer prevention in marginalized populations. A major focus of his research program has been documenting the biological pathways whereby psychological factors and substance use could increase risk for negative health outcomes. Most recently, this work includes studies examining leukocyte gene expression and microbiome-gut-brain axis.
