Guided by our mission to lead the nation’s research efforts on alcohol use and abuse, NIAAA supports research conducted within the Institute, as well as in institutions around the world.
Extramural research is research conducted by organizations outside the NIH with NIH support through grants, contracts, or cooperative agreements.
NIAAA’s extramural research includes both clinical and basic science research.
Clinical research comprises more than 30 percent of NIAAA’s extramural research, and includes programs in:
- Health Services
The laboratories and researchers housed within NIAAA seek to unravel the biological basis of alcohol use disorders and related problems, and to develop new strategies to prevent and treat these disorders.
