The Research Training on Alcohol Etiology and Treatment program is currently one of four T32s at the University at Buffalo. This training program features both post- and predoctoral opportunities for scholars interested in alcohol use and misuse, as well as in the treatment of alcohol use disorders.
The Research Training on Alcohol Etiology and Treatment program offers interdisciplinary training in the etiology and course of alcohol use and misuse, as well as the treatment for alcohol use disorders.
Our program hosts eight trainees, four at the predoctoral level and four at the postdoctoral level. The predoctoral training is a four-year commitment, which is the average duration of doctoral training for most of our programs.
Trainees will have the guidance of qualified mentors as they develop and pursue their independent research objectives. Mentors are assigned based on areas of research interest, faculty resources and availability, and specific expertise that would benefit a fellow.
Established in 2000 through a National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism grant of nearly $1.2 million, the training program has been renewed in 2005 ($1.7 million), in 2010 ($1.76 million), in 2016 ($2 million), and most recently was renewed in 2021 with a $1.7 million grant.
