[LECTURE] Molecular and cellular mechanism gating alcohol drinking and addiction

We are pleased to invite you to the lecture by Professor Segev Barak, Ph.D.: Molecular and cellular mechanisms gating alcohol drinking and addiction. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, March 20, 2024 at 10.00 a.m. in the Aula of the Slovak Academy of Sciences on Dúbravská cesta 9 in Bratislava.

Professor Barak is the Head of the School of Psychological Sciences at Tel Aviv University. Professor Barak received his academic degrees from Tel Aviv University, where he graduated in 2003 in Psychology and Communication, and earned his Ph.D. in 2009 in Psychobiology. His research focuses on the psychological and neurobiological mechanisms of alcohol and drug addiction, with emphasis on aberrant learning and memory processes in substance abuse. His lab is using a multidisciplinary approach, which combines sophisticated behavioral analysis of drug and alcohol-related behaviors, molecular biology, biochemistry, and cutting-edge techniques such as viral-mediated gene delivery or gene silencing, and RNA sequencing.

Professor Barak won the 2023 “Visit” program grant of the Slovak Academy of Sciences for outstanding scientists from abroad interested to visit our academy to present a scientific talk.
