As part of UB’s Discovery Week, the Research Institute on Addictions (RIA) held its third annual Student Research in Addiction Sciences Open House to showcase the broad range of addictions-related research taking place at UB.
More than 30 undergraduate and graduate students presented posters featuring their interdisciplinary research, conducted under the guidance and mentorship of faculty and research scientists from RIA and the UB College of Arts and Sciences, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biological Sciences, School of Social Work and Graduate School of Education.
The posters addressed a wide range of addictive substances, including opioids, alcohol, cocaine, tobacco and prescription drugs, and featured topics such as prenatal cocaine exposure and child behavior problems; bullying and later alcohol use; trauma-informed care; alcohol abstinence and treatment outcomes; and long-term neurological effects of Ritalin use.
