The laboratories and researchers housed within NIAAA seek to unravel the biological basis of alcohol use disorders and related problems, and to develop new strategies to prevent and treat these disorders. We maintain a multidisciplinary approach to research, and so our researchers collaborate with each other, as well as with researchers in other NIH Institutes and Centers, and external institutions.
