Drug Addiction: From Basic Research to Therapy provides a comprehensive overview of physiological, biochemical, and genetic pathways underlying drug addiction, and resultant efforts to develop novel treatment strategies dealing with drug addiction and other CNS disorders where the neurophysiological processes overlap, such as treatment of pain. Based on the AAPS-NIDA Frontiers in Science Symposium "Drug Addiction: From Basic Research to Therapies," this volume, representing focuses on the translation of fundamental addiction research to a variety of treatments, bringing together scientists with widely ranging expertise in synthetic and computational chemistry, molecular biology, genetics, and neuroscience with researchers in drug discovery and development, drug targeting, and quantitative therapeutics.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book grew out of a symposium entitled 'Frontiers in Science: Drug Addiction-From Basic Research to Therapies' held at the end of 2004. . The book is composed of 44 chapters, all concerned with basic science research relevant to drug dependence. . even for basic scientists this book is best approached as one where at most a few chapters may be of interest to any researcher . in drug addiction." (Jason White, Drug And Alcohol Review, Vol. 28, July, 2009)
