The Mission of IBG
IBG's mission is to conduct interdisciplinary research and training that examines the nature and origins of individual differences in behavior. Current human research at IBG uses large scale family, twin, adoption, and biobank studies to understand behaviors of societal relevance, such as drug use, cognitive abilities, personality, learning disabilities, and psychopathology. Model organisms are used to study drug-related behaviors, particularly those associate with the use of alcohol and nicotine.
