Dr. Stacey Daughters, a Professor of Clinical Psychology, is the 2021 recipient of the Ann Rankin Cowan Excellence Award for High-Impact Research in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience.
The aim of the $20,000 Ann Rankin Cowan Excellence Award is to provide a faculty member with seed funding to launch the innovative and meaningful early-stage research necessary to apply for external funding, thereby supporting research that can ultimately translate into clinical applications and therapeutic treatments for society. This award is made possible through the generous support of Ann Rankin Cowan (Psychology ’75).
Dr. Daughters was chosen as the recipient for her work using novel methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and noninvasive brain stimulation to study the behavioral and neural mechanisms contributing to the etiology and treatment of substance use disorder, which has tremendous potential for original and high impact contributions to the field of psychology and neuroscience. Congratulations, Dr. Daughters!
