Development and Neuroadaptation in Alcohol and Addictions (DNA2) Training Grant
In recognition of the fact that alcoholism and addictions have their origins in neurobehavioral development, our program focuses on training in the implementation of approaches that enable characterization of developmental antecedents leading to alcohol- and drug-use disorders, as well as in strategies to mitigate these outcomes. Through supervised research training in the laboratory of one or more Mentor-Eligible faculty members and programmatic training in the responsible conduct of research, scientific writing and professional development, program fellows will receive comprehensive mentorship to aid their transition to an independent research career.
