Dr. Perry is perhaps best known for her work in youth health promotion and tobacco use prevention research. She has authored more than 300 peer-reviewed articles, multiple chapters and books, most of which focus on health promotion and prevention programs, and has been recognized as one of the Most Highly Cited Researchers (top 0.5%) in Social Sciences. She was senior scientific editor of the 1994, 2012, and 2016 Surgeon General’s Reports on Preventing Tobacco and E-cigarette Use Among Youth and Young Adults.
Dr. Perry was an expert scientific witness for the state of Minnesota in the lawsuit against the tobacco companies in 1998; this lawsuit led to the Master Settlement Agreement and provided the nation with millions of tobacco industry documents. She was an investigator for the initial CATCH study and developed the school-based alcohol and tobacco prevention program, Project Northland.
The overall goal of the Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science (TCORS) on Youth and Young Adults is to develop an integrated program of research and training to provide scientific evidence, and a career path for regulatory scientists, to support U.S. tobacco regulation.
