I have received research and training support from a number of federal funding sources, including the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIH/NIAAA), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIH/NIDA), and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS/NIH).
At present, I am Principal Investigator for an NIAAA-funded (R25) training program focused on promoting the dissemination of empirically-supported practices for the treatment of alcohol and other substance use disorders. I am also leading, as an NIH-funded KL2 Scholar with Boston University’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute, a project focused on developing collaborative research partnerships with Latino youth development organizations in Massachusetts. Additionally, NIDA and NIAAA provided support for my postdoctoral fellowship (T32) as well as two competitive training fellowships (R25) offered through the National Hispanic Science Network.
I have recently completed studies funded by the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health and St. David’s Center for Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Research in Underserved Populations. And, currently, I have multiple proposals under review at the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Justice, and the other funding sources.
