Overview

The Howard University Collaborative Alcohol Research Center was established in September 1997 to stimulate, strengthen, and facilitate multidisciplinary research and collaborations that will lead to the reduction of alcohol morbidity and mortality among minority populations with emphasis on the African Americans.

The Center currently operates under the theme, “Biological Determinants of Alcohol Action in Minorities”. Since its inception, the Center has funded 23 research projects which include studies in basic science and studies involving human research. In addition, graduate education, faculty development, science education, and community outreach are also components of the center.

The infrastructure and administrative functions of the Center are housed within the Department of Pharmacology located in the Howard University College of Medicine. Robert E. Taylor, M.D., Ph.D., Interim Dean, College of Medicine, Chairman of Pharmacology, Professor of Pharmacology, Medicine, and Psychiatry serves as Principal Investigator and Center Director.
