Congratulations to Adam Gold (Behavioral Neuroscience Area), Evan Hart (Learning and Behavior Area) and Nina Lichtenberg (Learning and Behavior Area) for receiving the UCLA Training Program on Translational Neuroscience of Drug Abuse Training Grant (TNDA). The TNDA program is funded by a NIDA T32 Training Grant and provides trainees with the integrative knowledge base needed to conduct bidirectional translational studies including cutting-edge technical laboratory methods, computational approaches in data evaluation, and issues related to ethical treatment of human subjects.  TNDA trainees will have a research project in a specific mentor’s laboratory, but will gain exposure to other areas of drug abuse research through laboratory rotations, common core training elements as well as by formal and informal interaction among key faculty and TNDA leadership.
