Emily Oot, a third-year graduate student in our Behavioral Neuroscience PhD program and a fellow in the Transformative Training Program in Addiction Science, has received a national research service award to study risk factors for the initiation of alcohol and drug use during early adolescence. This $106,887 grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) will provide her with training in both functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) analyses and in the epidemiology of adolescent alcohol use disorders. Congratulations, Emily!

Scientists across the country were alarmed by the massive cuts to the National Institutes of Health that were proposed by President Trump in March. However, it appears that Congress is staying true to its history of bipartisan support for medical research: the budget approved by Congress for the remaining months of the 2017 fiscal year provides an additional $2 billion for the NIH above 2016 funding levels, as well as significant support for other scientific research that had been targeted for cuts. Thankfully for BU science research programs, VP for federal relations Jennifer Grodsky believes that the budget agreement is likely a preview of Congress’ response to Trump’s proposed 2018 budget.

The Manchester concert bombing is putting focus on an area of emergency management that is often overlooked: not only keeping people safe when entering a large venue, but also keeping them safe when exiting. Former Boston police Commissioner Edward F. Davis stressed that security and emergency management staff must remain vigilant at the end of events, particularly in high risk times.
