Andrew Ude Receives NIAAA F31 Grant
Andrew Ude, a Rutgers University PhD student, was recently awarded a NIAAA F-31 grant entitled, Alcohol use, physical activity, and neurophysiological indicators of behavioral adaptability (F31AA030715). The aims of the project are to examine co-occurring health behaviors and their effect on cardiovascular and neural pathways central to self-regulation. The goal is to inform addiction vulnerability and identify brain-body mechanisms that may serve as targets for neuroscience-informed treatment interventions. Center of Alcohol and Substance Use Studies (CAS) faculty Brandon Alderman and Marsha Bates are serving as co-sponsors for the research project. The mentoring team includes Samantha Farris, Edward Selby, and Andrea Spaeth.
