The Developmental Exposure Alcohol Research Center (DEARC) receives the majority of its funding from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, with additional support provided by Binghamton University. You can contribute to our research efforts through charitable donations to the DEARC at the link below. Your donations will provide critical support for pilot projects, equipment used to support research studies, gatherings of scientists to advance progress, and a myriad of other ways that can dramatically accelerate research progress.
The DEARC recognizes the instrumental role of Dr. Linda P. Spear as the original Scientific Director and long-time Center Director for the DEARC, who lost her battle with cancer in the Fall of 2020. To acknowledge her critical role in shaping the research of the Behavioral Neuroscience Program, faculty in the Department of Psychology have established a Scholarship fund to support students engaged in rigorous scientific research focused on early developmental vulnerabilities to drugs of abuse. Please consider giving to the Linda Patia Spear Memorial Fund.
