Changes in Cardiovascular Control Mechanisms Related to Binge Drinking during College: The goal of this grant is uncover the cumulative effects of binge drinking on integrated cardiovascular processes over two years and identify quantitative cardiovascular biomarkers of early drinking-related injury prior to the onset of frank illness.

Deconstructing the Temporal and Multi-Level Influences of the Baroreflex Mechanism on Alcohol Use Behaviors: This career awards will provide salary support plus research funds to examine the baroreflex mechanism’s temporal nature (in-the-moment versus across time) and multi-level influence on physiology, cognition, and behavior.

Project IMPACT: In-the-Moment Protection from Automatic Capture by Triggers: This randomized clinical trial assesses an “app”-based breathing intervention (added to behavioral treatment as usual) to reduce risk for relapse. Multi-PI: M. Bates
