studying the addiction

Methamphetamine abuse affects the human organism at many levels: brain, body, thoughts, genes.

The Methamphetamine Abuse Research Center at OHSU and the Portland VA Medical Center is a new NIDA center approaching drug research at all these levels, in a truly translational context. This means we study meth addiction "from bench to bedside" -- all the way from the genetics or pharmacology lab to the patient who comes in for treatment.
