Research Interests:

The use of genetic strategies to identify the underlying biological bases for the behavioral and physiological actions of drugs of abuse with special emphasis on nicotine.

Active Grants:

  • NIDA U01DA043802 (Stitzel, JA, Radcliffe, RA) 4/1/18-12/31/22. Genetic modifiers of Chrna5 deletion in mice: role in nicotine behaviors modulated by the medial habenula-IPN pathway. Role: PI
  • NIDA R01DA044283 (Vrieze, S). Deep sequencing, phenotyping, and imputation in large-scale biobanks: a novel and cost-effective framework to identify rare mutations associated with addiction. Role: Co-investigator
