Several faculty from the University at Buffalo were awarded funds through the SUNY Research Foundation.
The SUNY Research Collaboration Fund was designed to connect researchers on campuses in New York State and give them a platform to share data and strengthen their ideas. This year the foundation gave out over $700,000 in grants with each individual program receiving nearly $100,000 to be used over two years.
One grant will fund a project that tracks non-medical prescription drug abuse in college students.
UB Senior Research Scientist Kathleen Parks says UB will be working with the University at Albany and Binghamton University to develop a survey about the prevalence of drug use.
