RIA launches new website

Published November 21, 2013

UB’s Research Institute on Addictions (RIA), a national leader in the study of alcohol and substance abuse issues, has launched a new website.

The new site is part of UB’s Digital Communications Transformation project, a multiyear initiative to create and manage effective and informative websites for the university’s units.

“We are very excited about the new website and its potential to inform our colleagues and the community about the excellent work we do here at RIA,” says RIA Director Kenneth Leonard.

Highlights of the website include information about RIA scientists and their research programs, latest news, seminars, training opportunities, substance use fact sheets and photo galleries of recent RIA events, presented with easy navigation and eye-catching graphics.

“Our goal is to create a site that will be of value to researchers in the addictions field, potential postdoctoral associates and to the public at large who seek the latest information on substance abuse research,” Leonard says.
