For example, the Foundation for Alcohol Research (ABMRF
), set up as a partnership between academia and industry, lists 6 industry members on its board of trustees alongside a number of prominent academics.
Organizations such as The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), as well as the Alcoholic Beverage Medical Research Foundation (ABMRF
), supported several important UAB studies that contributed to the application to the NHLBI.
We contribute, as an industry, about $2.5 million dollars a year to ABMRF
(Alcohol Beverage Medical Research Foundation)...but nobody knows about it.
