2011 Harold and Marguerite Demone Lecture on Alcohol and Other Addictions
New Brunswick, NJ
The Birth of the "Science" of Alcohol Studies in the United States: the Role of the Center of Alcohol Studies at Yale and Rutgers University.
This lecture will trace the development of the scientific history of alcohol studies in the united states from the early 1930's until the present as seen through the lens of the role and mission of the Center of Alcohol Studies (CAS). The CAS emerged from the faculty of the Laboratory of Applied Physiology at Yale and has been located at Rutgers since 1962. The Center of Alcohol Studies' history will be used as a microcosm and prototype of research centers in the United States and elsewhere in the development and evolution of scientific approaches to study alcohol in all of its facets from molecular genetics to social policy and interventions.
Dr. Pandina has been a faculty member since 1973, and is a developmental neuropsychologist with specialty training in experimental and clinical psychopharmacology. He is currently Director of the Center for Alcohol Studies and the NIDA-funded Rutgers Transdisciplinary Prevention Research Center, which is focused on developing methods of intervention during a student's key developmental transitional periods.
This lecture is made possible by a generous donation from Harold and Marguerite Demone. Hal Demone was a dean of the School of Social Work from 1977 to 1987.
1 hour of continuing education credit is available. Certificates will be issued at the event at no cost.
