The Institutional Center for Scientific Research (ICSR) was established in 2013 as an initiative of Dr. Cynthia García Coll, a professor in the Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology program and the associate director of ICSR at Albizu University’s San Juan campus. Dr. García Coll is a graduate of Harvard University and a professor and leading researcher in education, pediatrics, and psychology.
Dr. Steven L. Proctor is a Senior Research Professor at Albizu University and directs the Institutional Center for Scientific Research at the Miami campus. He earned his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Louisiana State University (LSU). Prior to LSU, he completed his undergraduate work at Appalachian State University and received his master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Western Carolina University. He completed his pre-doctoral clinical internship at the Metropolitan Detention Center in the Federal Bureau of Prisons system in Los Angeles, California, and his postdoctoral fellowship at the G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson, Mississippi, where he received specialized training in the Addictive Disorders Treatment Program.
Dr. Proctor’s line of research broadly focuses on the evaluation of addictions assessment procedures, diagnostic criteria, instruments, and treatment outcomes. He has an extensive publication record including numerous peer-reviewed journal articles in these areas, and frequently presents the findings from his work at local, regional, and national professional meetings. He has worked with various treatment providers in the United States as well as abroad. He is primarily interested in evaluating and improving both the efficacy and effectiveness of substance use treatment services. An additional aim of his research is identifying and understanding the underlying mechanisms of problematic substance use that may influence or mediate treatment outcomes.
ICSR is focused on investigating, creating, and disseminating knowledge as an integral part of Albizu University.
The Center has three main purposes:
ICSR also serves as a center for disseminating information on research funding available from local and federal agencies, foundations, and educational institutions.
ICSR is supported by students and faculty members engaged in the development of scientific research. Students collaborating in the research center at the San Juan campus are Ariadna Aldarondo, Alessandra Landrau, Kiara Acevedo, Christian J. González, Ibelis Buzzetta, and Reina Serrano.
