Investigators from the Colleges of Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts and Pharmacy explore alcohol and drug actions at the molecular, electrophysiological and behavioral levels. Interdisciplinary collaborations allow the development of new tools and research approaches not possible in any one laboratory.


The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism awarded the Pathway to Independence Award, known as a K99/R00 grant, to postdoctoral fellow Ben Lovely (Eberhart Lab). The award streamlines early career transitions by supporting an individual's five-year project, for two years as a mentored research investigator and three years as an independent faculty member. Lovely's initial award totals $189,651. His project analyzes an ethanol-sensitive pathway regulating craniofacial development.
