THE RADAR PROJECT: IDENTIFYING EARLY WARNING SIGNALS ON THE PATHWAYS TO ALCOHOL USE DISORDER
Grant number: 1105521 | Funding period: 2016 - 2020
The transition from alcohol initiation to an alcohol use disorder is a crucial yet under-studied research area. The current project will characterise the natural history of alcohol use disorder and identify modifiable factors that increase or decrease the likelihood of developing an alcohol use disorder once alcohol use begins. This information will guide prevention of, and early intervention for, this disabling disorder.
