Category: WALS – Wednesday Afternoon Lectures

Runtime: 00:57:29

Description: Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

Two drugs with significant impact on our society today are heroin and cannabis, both of are central focus to the research pursued by Dr. Hurd. Her talk will provide insights about the molecular neurobiological underpinnings of addiction relevant to these drugs. Her work is based on the direct study of the human brain and complementary animal models that allow the possibility to track the protracted effects of early developmental drug exposure into adulthood and even across generations on discrete neuronal systems and behavior. Her multidisciplinary translational approaches integrate molecular, epigenetic, genetic, and in vivo neuroimaging.
