Research title
Activity-Dependent Neuroprotective Protein (ADNP) and substance abuse disorders


Research project

Activity dependent neuroprotective factor (ADNP) is a key protein in many processes, including brain development, neural plasticity, gene regulation, and microtubule stabilization. Using in vitro and in vivo studies, I aim to characterize the role of ADNP, and its active fragment NAP, in alcohol and cocaine addiction.
