New Meth Research Center Funded

The National Institute on Drug Abuse has given $5 million to the Oregon Health & Science University and the Portland VA Medical Center to launch the Methamphetamine Abuse Research Center (MARC), according to the online Medical News Today
 

The center will study every aspect of Meth addiction, from genetics to treatment, and will seek to swiftly translate research findings into practice.  Research themes for MARC will include brain systems involved in craving and intoxication; genetic, nerve-cell, and brain-function changes related to Meth use and withdrawal; the effect of stress on craving and relapse; and the study of impulsivity and decision-making regarding Meth use.
