The National Institute for Alcohol Abuse & Alcoholism (NIAAA) has awarded $1.7 million to the Clinical and Research Institute on Addictions (CRIA) and the School of Public Health and Health Professions. The new NIAAA funding allows the training program to expand opportunities to graduate students pursuing their doctorates at UB. The program’s co-principal investigators are Kenneth E. Leonard, PhD, professor of psychiatry and director of the Clinical and Research Institute on Addictions; and Gregory G. Homish, PhD, of the School of Public Health and Health Professions. “Our successful postdoctoral training program, which has been continuously funded for the past 21 years, demonstrated important strengths that have led to this expansion of our program,” says Leonard.
