MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A professor at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis has received grants totaling $2.1 million from the National Institutes of Health.
Dr. Robert W. Williams will use the money over the next five years to study how increased stress predisposes people to addiction and alcoholism.
Williams, a professor in the departments of anatomy and neurobiology and pediatrics, will have several collaborators. The team will generate molecular data sets from key parts of the brain in rodents that have become addicted to ethanol.
Williams also is director of the UT Center for Integrative and Translational Genomics.
