To promote healthier local, national and international populations through alcohol-related research and innovation.
The vision of the Liverpool Centre for Alcohol Research (LCAR) is to create a centre that will be internationally recognised for its work in alcohol-related research and education, a centre that will attract the best people to Liverpool, and a centre that will impact on treatments, research direction and policy in the UK and internationally.
The underlying strategy for our work in alcohol research is unique. Through partnership-led, translation-focused working, the centre hopes to make advances in an area that is lacking interventions that have significant scale and reach. The increasing affordability, availability and acceptability of alcohol since the 1980s has resulted in a rising number of negative consequences that is placing a strain on the NHS, other treatment provisions, families and society.
LCAR, along with its partners, will promote healthier populations through their research and innovation.
