The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse
Pre-Clinical Papers Call for Papers
The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse (AJDAA) is committed to the publication of preclinical science. While the journal has traditionally focused on the clinical sciences, we believe that addiction research is an interdisciplinary effort that demands communication between preclinical and clinical investigators. We therefore welcome the submission of manuscripts in areas of epigenetic mechanisms, genetic influences, individual differences, and those presenting a translational perspective, although all preclinical papers are of interest.
In our most recent issue, the AJDAA is offering the work of Amri et al. titled “Transgenerational modification of hippocampus TNF-α and S100B levels in the offspring of rats chronically exposed to morphine during adolescence” as free access for the next two years.
Dr. Sakire Pogun is a Professor and Consultant at Ege University Center for Brain Research (EUBAM) and Institute on Drug Abuse, Toxicology and Pharmaceutical Science (BATI). She has received her academic degrees in Turkey (Hacettepe and Ege Universities), worked at the Johns Hopkins University as a post doctoral researcher and NIH/NIDA/IRP as a visiting professor. Her earlier work involves dopaminergic, cholinergic, and nitrergic neurotransmission at the receptor, transporter and behavioral levels. For the past 25 years, her research focused on nicotine (sex differences, individual differences in preference, animal models). She has authored over 80 articles in peer reviewed journals, three books, book chapters, and prepared a film on physiology laboratory.
