$100,000 awarded to U of M Center for Neural Circuits in Addictions for Continued Research on Neurostimulation as Addiction Treatment

An estimated 450,000 to 500,000 people in Minnesota struggle with substance use disorders, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. To try to combat this social issue, the Center for Neural Circuits in Addictions at the University of Minnesota Medical School was established in 2020. Director Mark Thomas, PhD, a professor in the Department of Neuroscience and director of the Medical Discovery Team on Addiction, and his team recently earned a supplemental grant of $100,000 from the National Institutes on Drug Abuse for further research into neurostimulation as a potential treatment for addiction.
