2 federal public health grants awarded to Weill Cornell Medical College
Date:1/16/2008

NEW YORK (Jan. 16, 2008) -- Two major federal grants have been awarded to Public Health faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City.

Dr. Kenneth W. Griffin is the recipient of a three-year $1.6 million NIH grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) for research into the long-term effects of a school-based drug-abuse prevention program previously delivered to urban minority youth attending New York City middle schools. The study will focus on a sample of approximately 3,500 young adults, ages 21 to 23, who participated in a randomized prevention trial during their early teens. In addition to testing the long-term effects of the prevention program on alcohol, tobacco and illicit drug use among the participants as young adults, the study will test whether the effects generalize to a variety of sexual risk behaviors.

Dr. Griffin is associate professor of public health in the Division of Prevention and Health Behavior, Department of Public Health, Weill Cornell Medical College.

Dr. Inmaculada de Melo-Martn is the recipient of a two-year $150,000 National Science Foundation Grant (NSF) for innovative research examining the ways in which the concept of human dignity is used in current debates about contentious biotechnologies such as embryonic stem cell research, human genetic enhancement and the creation of human-nonhuman chimeras. It will provide the first systematic assessment of what several influential scholars and recent national and international science policy documents mean when they say that these technologies threaten human dignity. Thus, the research can play a role in improving dialogue between the sciences and the humanities, and between the sciences and society.

Dr. de Melo-Martn is associate professor of public health in the Division of Medical Ethics, Department of Public Health, Weill Cornell Medical College.
