about us

Our research program is aimed at identifying the neural mechanisms that underlie the development of drug addiction and relapse. Broadly, we are interested in studying the trajectory of neuroplasticity, neurochemistry, and behavior associated with addiction as a relapsing-remitting brain disorder. These interests extend to the comorbidities between drug addiction and other debilitating psychiatric diseases.

We are housed in the Department of Pharmacology within the Medical school at the University of Minnesota. Prospective graduate students can find information about applying to the program here.
