My broad scientific goal is to understand how exposure to alcohol and other drugs of abuse during adolescence causes alterations to neurobiology that persist into adulthood. One focus of my research is to elucidate the neuroimmune and epigenetic mechanisms underlying adolescent binge alcohol-induced disruption of basal forebrain cholinergic neurocircuitry in adulthood. A second focus of my research is to investigate a connection between lasting adolescent binge drinking-induced neuroimmune priming with the etiology of basal forebrain neuropathology in Alzheimer’s disease.
