Elisa Trucco recognized as an Emerging Scholar in Research on Adolescence

The Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA) recently named Elisa Trucco, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychology, as an Emerging Scholar. The award is given annually to four researchers recognized as gaining national prominence as experts on adolescence. Dr. Trucco, who joined FIUs Center for Children and Families in August 2015 immediately after completing a postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Michigan, is establishing an interdisciplinary program of research focused on increased understanding of the etiology of substance use in adolescence from a social ecological approach. During the course of her training, the Research Society on Alcoholism honored her innovative research with two prestigious awards, the Junior Investigator Award (2013) and the Enoch Gordis Research Recognition Award (2015). Currently the recipient of a highly competitive Research Career Development Award (K01) from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and co-investigator on a National Institute on Drug Abuse grant recently awarded to FIU, Dr. Trucco has already authored or co-authored more than 20 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
