UT to get $1.5 million to study fetal alcohol syndrome
AP Wednesday June 15, 2016

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The University of Tennessee has received a $1.5 million grant to study the role of genetics in fetal alcohol syndrome.

Kristin Hamre, an assistant professor in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, said researchers have known for some time that the harm that comes to babies as a result of their mother's alcohol consumption while pregnant varies. Hamre, in a press release from the university, said both the genetics of the mother and the baby play a key role in fetal alcohol syndrome.

Animal models, and to a lesser extent, human studies, have shown that genetics are likely to contribute to the severity of harm as a result of alcohol exposure.

The grant money comes from the National Institutes of Health.
