The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism funded national research Center grant, "Environmental Approaches to Prevention," enabled the founding of Prevention Research Center in 1985 and continues to lead in the development of core PRC research programs in the 21st Century. Over those years, the Center grant has contributed in a number of other ways to the overall research program at PRC; these especially include maintenance of core funding for administrative, computational, and library research resources, the maintenance of software systems for mathematical and statistical modeling, and extensive support facilities for qualitative data collection and analysis.
PRC's research program is designed to include research at a variety of levels of aggregation and complexity. The Component Directors are committed to the development of integrated archival and individual level data acquisition approaches in all components of the planned studies.
