Congratulations to CARE Executive Committee Member Dr. Jeff Boissoneault

Congratulations to CARE Executive Committee member Dr. Jeff Boissoneault who has been hired into a new tenure-track Assistant Professor position within the University of Florida Department of Clinical & Health Psychology.  He has also recently received a 5-year, $2.5 million R01 grant from NIAAA titled “Characterizing the Effects of Family History of Alcoholism on Alcohol Analgesia.” Project Narrative: “Self-medication of pain with alcohol is a common, yet risky, behavior. Evidence suggests family history of alcoholism may affect the degree to which alcohol use relieves pain, but the independent contributions of expectation and conditioning have not been previously studied. Interactive effects of sex and family history are also currently unclear. This project addresses this gap in knowledge and will inform further research and clinical/translational efforts for reducing risk associated with these behaviors.”
