Emerging Addiction Science Seminar Series

The Emerging Addiction Science Seminar (EASS) Series which started September 2018 is a seminar for Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies (CAS) faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and affiliates. Its goals are to provide educational opportunities to CAS-affiliated students and postdocs that confer broad awareness of various addictions-related perspectives, research topics, and methodologies. The EASS series facilitates conversations about emerging areas of addiction research, especially those that may reflect fruitful avenues for research collaborations. The series strengthens collaborative connections.
