Grant Awarded to Assoc. Professor Kate Nooner by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of the National Institutes of Health

Dr. Kate Brody Nooner is the principal investigator of a $440,186 R15 grant awarded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of the National Institutes of Health to study biomarkers of underage binge drinking in maltreated children. Dr. Nooner is an Associate Professor in the Psychology Department at UNCW where she directs the Trauma and Resilience Laboratory.

This grant will fund a study of 60 youth ages 12- to 14-years (30 maltreated, 30 non-maltreated) in the Wilmington area for 3 years to help identify neurocognitive and psychosocial risk and resilience factors that pertain to binge drinking. Binge drinking is a high-risk behavior that begins in adolescence and is associated with many lifelong problems including alcoholism. Electroencephalography (EEG), neurocognitive tests, and psychosocial assessments pertaining to alcohol use will be used to identify risk and resilience factors with the goal of reducing the lifelong consequences of binge drinking. UNCW undergraduate and graduate students will be involved in all aspects of the research funded by this grant, which includes collaborations with the New Hanover County Department of Social Services and Duke University.
