Congratulations to Michelle Zaso G’15, G’19, who is a 2018-19 recipient of the Doctoral Dissertation Research Excellence Award from The Federation of Associations in Behavioral and Brain Sciences. Her award-winning study looks at how genetics and peer environments shape alcohol use among adolescents. “Our work accelerates the design of prevention and intervention efforts to curtail underage drinking and its grave consequences,” says Zaso, who earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology.
