Rhode Island: HIV, Alcohol Topic for Brown Study

October 27, 2010

Brown University will use a five-year, $7.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish the Brown Alcohol Research Center on HIV. Center researchers will conduct a three-year study examining changes in brain structure, metabolism, and cognitive functioning of HIV-positive persons who are light or heavy drinkers. Another project will target HIV-positive heavy drinkers who present to emergency departments; these patients will be asked whether they are interested in changing their behavior and, if the answer is yes, presented with information about how they might accomplish that change. Peter Monti, professor of alcohol and addiction studies, will direct the new center.
