Research

research overview

  • The Stitzel laboratory is interested in the molecular and physiological mechanisms leading to nicotine dependence and co-morbid psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia and ADHD. Current studies include 1) identifying novel genes that influence nicotine consumption 2) determining the functional consequence and mechanism of action of genetic variants known to impact drug seeking behavior 3) establishing mechanisms through which nicotine exposure in utero increases the offspring’s risk for nicotine dependence, ADHD and schizophrenia and 4) understanding the mechanisms through which nicotine withdrawal disrupts sleep and how this information can lead to better treatments for smoking cessation.
