NIDA/NIAAA Training Site
The training program includes investigators with faculty appointments at the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), with laboratories there, at the affiliated and physically incorporated Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), the nearby Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC), and Portland State University (PSU). Several investigators are affiliated with the Vollum Institute for Advanced Biomedical Research (VIABR), a facility established on the OSHU campus in 1987 which concentrates on studies of molecular neuroscience. OHSU has been preparing pre- and postdoctoral students for teaching and research careers in the biological cases of drug-seeking behavior for more than two decades. Scientists based at the VAMC, VIABR, and the ONPRC train students through their affiliations with a basic science department of OHSU, or the Vollum Institute. Participating faculty are in the Departments of Behavioral Neuroscience, Cell & Developmental Biology, Physiology & Pharmacology, Neurology, and the Vollum Institute.
