Host: Xiaoke Chen

Abstract

Drugs of abuse have taken center stage throughout the country as opioids have become a primary public health concern and previously illicit drugs such as cannabis have gained attention for medicinal purposes. The talk will provide insights about recent advances made in into the molecular neurobiological underpinnings of addiction disorders that provide avenues for the development of novel treatment interventions. A translational and multidisciplinary scientific approach will be described ranging from molecular and epigenetic studies in animal models to neurobiological investigations of the postmortem human brain that together guides human clinical studies.
