Research centers and partners

Fewer than five percent of psychology departments in the United States exist within a school of science. But here at IUPUI, psychology exists alongside—and engages in collaborative partnerships with—other scientific deparments and community organizations. 

Faculty and student teams engage in ongoing interdisciplinary projects, funded in part by federal grants and foundation support.

Indiana Alcohol Research Center (IARC)

The Indiana Alcohol Research Center (IARC) is focused on the elucidation of the biomedical and psychosocial factors that contribute to alcohol abuse and alcoholism. It was established in 1987 by a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) of the National Institutes of Health. The NIAAA is the major federal agency supporting research into the etiology, pathogenesis, treatment, and prevention of alcoholism.
