We are a multidisciplinary team that examines the intersection between health behavior, mental health, and addiction.
We address essential questions, like:
  • Why are some people more likely to use and abuse drugs?
  • How do drugs alter the way we think, feel, and behave?
  • What makes something addictive?
By answering these questions we can:
  • 1. Understand and reduce health disparities in cancer and other addiction-related diseases.
  • 2. Prevent and treat addiction and associated mental health problems.
  • 3. Identify the basic mechanisms of emotion and motivation.
