|Alcohol Research Center|
The Alcohol Research Center (ARC) in the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), directed by Dr. Subhash Pandey, is dedicated to innovative research regarding mechanisms involved in the development of alcohol dependence and alcoholism. These researches will ultimately contribute to the identification of molecular targets that can be used to develop effective treatments for alcoholism affecting millions of individuals and representing an enormous social and economical burden to society.
The center is interested in developing multidisciplinary approaches aimed at characterizing molecular, cellular, genetic, and epigenetic mechanisms associated with the development of alcohol addiction, the consequences of these alterations on brain circuits involved in addition, and their behavioral outcomes.
Basic and clinical researchers across UIC and Jesse Brown VA medical center are involved in the center.
