RSA 2023

The Edge Lab went to the Research Society on Alcoholism conference to present posters about the work performed in the EDGE Lab. It was a great opportunity to meet and speak to researchers from all over the country who share an interest in alcohol use research.


Recently, the EDGE Lab attended SOURCE 2022 at the Curry Student Center. It was a wonderful night where we got to meet so many interesting students. We hope you all enjoyed meeting us as much as we enjoyed meeting you!
