Preclinical testing of medications for psychostimulant use disorders.

 

Substance use disorders are quite difficult to treat, and even when prolonged abstinence is achieved, there is a persistent risk of relapse. Although research has led to pharmacological approaches aimed at reducing drug intake and/or drug cravings, there is still no safe and effective treatment available for psychostimulant use disorders. In this seminar, I will discuss some of the unique difficulties associated with psychostimulant medications development, followed by recent work in my laboratory on two protein targets that may have therapeutic potential: the dopamine D3 receptor and the serotonin 1B receptor.
