NCCU-UNC NIAAA U54 Partnership: Mechanisms of Alcohol Pathology

Profile Image

This collaborative research program between North Carolina Central University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is relevant to alcohol induced health disparities among African-Americans due to a focus on understanding morbidity due to alcohol abuse.  In this research program health disparities are primarily due to increased severity of fetal alcohol toxicity, alcohol neurotoxicity, and alcohol induced carcinogenesis, liver injury, and inflammation.  This collaborative program has research components addressing each of these pathologies.  Collaborative partnerships that carry out integrated and focused research on the molecular mechanisms of alcohol pathology involving faculty and students from NCCU, a historically Black college and University, educates and involves future researchers on alcohol health disparities as well as making discoveries on mechanisms that may lead to cures.
