This program is devoted to molecular genetic studies of alcohol use disorder (AUD) and the drugs that are used to treat AUD. A focus will be placed on the use of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and their differentiation into neurons and glial cells. Therefore, experience in the creation of iPSCs and their differentiation into neuronal cells would be optimal. Further iPSC training will be provided. The role of the person in this position is to extend ongoing research and publish meaningful pharmacogenomic and molecular genomic studies of AUD and its drug therapy.
