Alcohol Research Center
Website and/or Calendar Links
The center is interested in developing multidisciplinary approaches aimed at characterizing molecular, cellular, genetic, and epigenetic mechanisms associated with the development of alcoholism, the consequences of these alterations on brain circuits involved in addiction, and their behavioral outcomes.
Various basic and clinical investigators from different departments within UIC, UIUC, and Jesse Brown VA medical center are involved in the alcoholism research.
Ultimately, research conducted within the center will lead to the identification of novel molecular and cellular targets, which can be used to develop a new drug therapy to treat or prevent alcoholism.
