UConn alcohol research center continues run

Despite increasing competition for federal research dollars, the Alcohol Research Center at UConn Health endures well into its fifth decade with an unprecedented continuation of funding from the National Institutes of Health.

A five-year, $7.5 million award from the NIH’s National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism further extends the program, which was initiated at UConn Health’s Department of Psychiatry in 1978. It’s the eighth successful competitive renewal, continuing funding for years 41 through 45.
