Review: A unique collaboration of researchers working together to address the impacts on the social, psychological and mental health developments of youth who engage in binge drinking or drinking of alcohol generally. The consortium aims to develop best models for the understanding of the impact of alcohol on teenage maturation by integrating the learning from their molecular, cellular, physiological, endocrine, genetic neuroanatomical and behavioral studies of underage drinking. Ultimately the consortium intends to provide an evidence-base to contribute to the development of policies, prevention strategies, health promotion campaigns and treatment interventions to reduce harms associated with underage drinking.
