Richard Lamb, Ph.D.
The Lamb Lab studies the Behavioral Biology of alcohol and drug addiction. While recently we have begun to use behavioral genetic approaches, this work primarily involves behavioral pharmacological approaches. Behavioral Pharmacology is an inherently cross-disciplinary field. Its basis in Pharmacology and the Experimental Analysis of Behavior makes it an approach that is very conducive to translational research, and many investigators trained in Behavioral Pharmacology have at one time or another conducted both clinical and basic research. The lab’s recent work with rats, mice and pigeons has centered on studying behavioral mechanisms that might be involved in addiction or that might be responsible for medication effectiveness. The later potentially make such studies very useful in drug development.

The well recognized need for addiction scientists with interdisciplinary training is addressed by this program in which trainees conduct research on collaborative projects spanning more than one laboratory and more than one experimental approach. An experienced Program Director along with 17 other preceptors and an expert External Advisory Committee will oversee the progress and further growth of drug and alcohol abuse training at UTHSCSA.
