Partnering with other researchers, building on their particular expertise or data opportunities, or enhancing their research capacity for alcohol studies is an important aspect of our Center mission: to reduce alcohol-related disparities.
Health Services Association-California Community Colleges: Camillia K. Lui continues her collaborations in California through a state-funded Tobacco-related Disease Research Program (TRDR) study with community college partners, including Health Services Association California Community Colleges, Dr. Sang Leng Trieu at Ohlone College and community-based organizations.

Center scientists involved: William C. Kerr and Priscilla Martinez
Stanford University and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF): William C. Kerr, along with Pamela Trangenstein and Deidre Patterson, are involved in an NCI project with UCSF and Stanford on restricting tobacco outlets such as government controlled alcohol stores, and is involved in a study of the impacts of alcohol policies on birth outcomes with UCSF.

University of Iowa and University of Texas at Austin: Nina Mulia continues collaborations with former postdoctoral fellows in ARG’s T32 training program. These include a mixed-methods R01 study led by Paul Gilbert at the University of Iowa with ARG senior scientist Sarah E. Zemore that investigates natural recovery from alcohol problems using longitudinal, online-surveys and qualitative interviews. Another recent collaboration with Miguel Pinedo of the University of Texas at Austin and Sarah E. Zemore, involve qualitative research on barriers to using specialty alcohol and drug treatment programs among Black and White substance users.
Research Triangle Institute (RTI): Nina Mulia, along with senior scientists Sarah E. Zemore, William C. Kerr, Cheryl Cherpitel and Thomas K. Greenfield and research associate Joanne Delk, collaborate with Katherine Karriker-Jaffe at RTI on a new simulation study that investigates effects of hypothetical interventions to enhance access to alcohol health services and recovery supports on disparities related to alcohol use disorder.
Kennesaw State University, Georgia State University, and Emory University: Continuing her interest in alcohol and breast cancer risk, Priscilla Martinez is working with Monica Swahn at Kennesaw State University, Ritu Aneja at Georgia State University, and Senait Kebede at Emory University on a narrative review of alcohol use and breast cancer risk, and conducting an analysis of data from a nationwide survey of women about awareness of the link between alcohol use and breast cancer.
Oregon Health and Science University: Cheryl Cherpitel continues collaborations with the Oregon Health and Science University on a study on the risk of motor vehicle crashes from cannabis and alcohol use in ER patients, funded by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on a case-crossover study of recurrent acute alcoholic pancreatitis.
