Our laboratory is investigating the effects of opioids on the human brain. One of our current projects is focused on mapping expression of ΔFosB in post-mortem human brain specimens obtained following opioid overdoses. Our long term goal is to better understand addiction resulting from the abuse of opioids, by analyzing differential gene expression in the specimens we have on hand . Our research is funded by NH-INBRE of the National Institutes of Health.
