Paul Slesinger PhD is Lillian and Henry M. Stratton Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Center for Neurotechnology and Behavior. Our long-term objective is to discover new drugs for treating addiction to drugs of abuse and alcohol. We focus on changes in neuronal excitability with drugs, and take a broad approach of combining structural biology, biochemistry, electrophysiology and behavior. Visit Paul Slesinger's Laboratory of Membrane Excitability & Disease for more details.
