The Alcohol Epidemiology Program
The Alcohol Epidemiology Program (AEP) is a research program in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health within the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis campus). AEP faculty and staff conduct advanced research to discover effective community and policy interventions to reduce alcohol-related social and health problems.
The AEP research team has a variety of academic backgrounds, including public health, psychology, and sociology.
The program was founded by Alexander C. Wagenaar, PhD, who directed the program from 1991–2004. We thank Dr. Wagenaar for his leadership throughout his tenure with the AEP. Dr. Wagenaar is currently Professor of Health Outcomes and Policy at the University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville.
The AEP has received funding from grants from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
