Sarah E. Zemore received a Ph.D. degree in social psychology from University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Mass, USA. She currently works as a Scientist at the Alcohol Research Group, Emeryville, Calif, USA and Lecturer at the University of California. For the past 10 years, Dr. Zemore has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for her research on topics related to alcohol and drug use and problems. She has a strong background of research on topics related to treatment efficacy and recovery from the addictions and has conducted numerous studies related to affiliation with, and the efficacy of, 12-step groups. She has also established a record of research on treatment motivation and was PI of an NIAAA-funded field study examining application of the theory of planned behavior to treatment retention. Finally, Dr. Zemore has published extensively on racial/ethnic disparities in the epidemiology of alcohol consumption and problems and is now leading studies examining, in part, why Black and Latino populations may experience alcohol problems at lower levels of consumption than Whites, and how the 2008-9 recession has affected alcohol consumption problems overall and within racial/ethnic groups. Dr. Zemore has served on several Review Committees of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
