Who says retirement is relaxing?

John A. Nevin

Professor Emeritus John A. (Tony) Nevin

Earlier this year, John A. Nevin received a $1.7 million, 5-year grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to develop methods for preventing relapse after behavioral treatments of problem behavior such as aggression or self-injury in developmentally disabled children. A professor emeritus of psychology since 1995, Nevin is not, apparently, taking it easy in retirement. He hasn’t severed his ties with UNH either. The UNH Office of Sponsored Research helped Nevin assemble the complex proposal for this project, which includes basic research with animal subjects, translational studies with moderately disabled children, and clinical work with severely disabled children. Partner institutions are Utah State University, University of Massachusetts Medical School, the Shriver Center, Johns Hopkins University, and Nova University.
