"My laboratory focuses on the behavioral genetics of alcohol seeking behavior through research on behavioral markers that characterize differences in the likelihood that animal models will seek the pharmacologic effects of alcohol. We also assess neural circuits underlying how genes and environment interact in producing alcohol-related behaviors. Using these animal models, our ultimate goal is to find better treatments for alcoholism based on the latest understanding of the behavioral and genetic mechanisms that lie at the heart of alcoholism."

Dr. Grahame is not accepting graduate students for Fall 2019 admission.
