  • Yosef Berlow / Poster Presentation Award / "Increased striatal iron accumulation in methamphetamine users".
  • Alexandre Colville / Poster Presentation Award / "c-Fos induction associated with ethanol withdrawal in chromosome 1 congenic and GIRK3 knockout mice".
  • Anita Cservenka / Poster Presentation Award / "Gender differences in the neural substrates of emotional conflict during adolescence".
  • Lauren Kruse / Poster Presentation Award / "MPDZ knockout and Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) transgenic overexpression models".
  • Melanie Pina / Poster Presentation Award / "Systemic blockade of dopamine D1 but not D2 receptors impairs the development of ethanol-conditioned place preference".
  • Antony Abraham / Oral Presentation Award / "SKF 81297, a dopamine D1 receptor agonist, enhances extinction of contextual fear".
  • William Giardino / Oral Presentation Award / "Selective involvement of the neuropeptide urocortin-1 in long-term alcohol consumption in mice".
  • Josh Kaplan / Oral Presentation Award / "Cellular mechanisms underlying the alcohol-induced increase in GABAA inhibition of cerebellar granule cells in low alcohol preferring DBA/2J mice and suppression of GABAA inhibition in high alcohol preferring C57BL/6J mice".

And a very special thank you goes to Allison Anacker for her hard work as a member of the Research Week Steering Committee. Fabulous job Allison!
