Primary Research Areas

Understanding the developmental psychobiology that underlies alcohol and opioid addiction using fundamental as well as advanced and innovative techniques that include behavioral assessments, molecular quantification, electrophysiological recordings, and advanced neuropharmacological and neuroimaging

Current Projects

Can the brain be addicted prior to the first encounter with a psychoactive drug like alcohol and opioids? My team’s current research primarily aims to answer this question by investigating how nurture via developmental and early-life experiences epigenetically interact with nature (genetics) to determine an individual’s propensity to abuse alcohol and opioids.
