College Drinking: What’s the problem?
Dr. Fromme’s research is designed to understand the factors that influence heavy drinking and related consequences among adolescents and young adults. She will describe the alcohol use of a cohort of UT college freshman that she followed from high school throughout their college years, and how she will now use her simulated bar laboratory to test their individual differences in response to alcohol. Lastly, Dr. Fromme’s ongoing research will examine genetic influences on the alcohol use and other behavioral risks of this sample of young adults.
