UB addiction specialist Clara Bradizza appointed to NIH study section

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Clara Bradizza, PhD, senior research scientist
in the University at Buffalo Research Institute on Addictions, has
been selected to serve as a member of the Interventions to Prevent
and Treat Addictions Study Section of the National Institutes of
Health’s Center for Scientific Review.

Study sections review grant applications submitted to the NIH,
make recommendations to NIH advisory councils or boards, and survey
the status of research in their fields of science. Bradizza will
serve a two-year term beginning July 1, 2018, and ending June 30,
2020, and will review applications for human research aimed at
preventing addiction and treating substance use disorders,
including curtailing the progression of substance use to dependence
or abuse, and preventing relapse.

“Dr. Bradizza’s appointment to the study section is
a testament to her noteworthy achievements in the study of alcohol
and nicotine use disorders, particularly in finding innovative
treatment strategies involving emotional regulation,” says
Kenneth Leonard, RIA director.

Bradizza’s current research includes projects that span
alcohol, tobacco and e-cigarette products. She is currently
involved as a multiple principal investigator on a study testing an
affect regulation intervention for alcohol use disorders, and has
completed a treatment development study of an affect regulation
intervention for pregnant smokers. In addition, she is
collaborating on two studies investigating the impact of
pretreatment change on treatment outcomes and a tailored treatment
approach that is responsive to pretreatment change among alcohol
dependent individuals.

She recently co-authored two books for treatment professionals,
“Emotion Regulation Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorders:
Helping Clients Manage Negative Thoughts and Feelings” and
“Managing Negative Emotions Without Drinking: A Workbook of
Effective Strategies.”

An adjunct research faculty member in UB’s Department of
Family Medicine, Bradizza received a master’s degree and
doctorate in clinical psychology from Binghamton University.

RIA is a research center of the University at Buffalo and a
national leader in the study of alcohol and substance abuse issues.
RIA’s research programs, most of which have multiple-year
funding, are supported by federal, state and private foundation
grants. Located on UB’s Downtown Campus, RIA is a member of
the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and a key contributor to
UB’s reputation for research excellence. To learn more, visit
