Transforming treatment options for alcohol use disorder

Barbara Mason, PhD

Alcohol misuse has risen in recent years, yet the underlying causes of alcohol use disorder (AUD), as well as the future standard of care, remain unclear. In this Front Row lecture, Scripps Research professor Barbara Mason shared how her team is exploring the neurocircuitry involved in AUD and developing new medicines that could curb alcohol intake. Her research is identifying the most promising drug candidates for clinical trials and changing the way scientists view addiction, withdrawal and relapse.
