Identifying druggable targets for treating addiction

The fundamental research goal of the Buczynski Lab is to identify novel molecular changes in the brain caused by chronic nicotine or alcohol exposure that drive the subsequent neurological and behavioral dysfunctions. This research integrates advanced mass spectrometry platforms with a wide range of techniques including chemical biology, in vivo microdialysis, and behavioral pharmacology.
