Fall e-School of Alcohol Addiction Research
Excessive alcohol use is a major cause of morbi-mortality and contributes to an ongoing public health crisis, accounting for ~5% of global disease burden.
In Europe, the prevalence of alcohol addiction is estimated to 3.7%.
A minority of people with recreational alcohol use develop alcohol addiction, a chronic disease often associated with both somatic and psychiatric comorbidities and characterized by systematically biased choice preference for alcohol at the expense of healthy rewards, and continued use despite adverse consequences.
Alcohol addiction also suffers from the treatment gap and is the most pressing area of unmet medical needs in psychiatry, with only a small fraction of patients receiving effective, evidence-based treatments.
Current medications have small effect sizes and numerous translational studies suggested new promising treatments.
The primary objective of the Fall e-School of Alcohol Addiction Research is to teach young investigators (PhD students, post-docs) on alcohol research the essential knowledge on alcohol addiction.
Young investigators in the alcohol addiction field will have. the unique opportunity to meet the PI.
