Fulton T. Crews, PhD, is a neuropsychopharmacologist who for many years has investigated how drugs change the brain and behavior. As director of the UNC Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies, he has investigated how chronic ethanol induces structural and functional changes in the brain associated with binge drinking to determine if and how these changes contribute to behavioral changes that lead to addiction. RIA's annual Seminar Series brings to Buffalo national experts in the field of alcohol, drugs and related issues. Each fall and spring, speakers present research results to an audience of policymakers, clinicians, other researchers, students and the general public.
