Description:

The Center for Alcohol Research in Epigenetics (CARE) evaluates the epigenetic changes that are operative in the regulation of neurocircuitry function during the pathogenesis of alcoholism. The primary focus of CARE is to investigate how different epigenetic mechanisms contribute to changes in specific target genes at the genome-wide level associated with adaptations in the reward and stress systems in the brain during alcoholism using clinical and preclinical models.
