Weekly Science Seminar Series
The Emerging Addiction Science Seminar (EASS) Series is a weekly 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 Emerging Addiction Science Seminar series also facilitates conversations about emerging areas of addiction research, especially those that may reflect fruitful avenues for research collaborations among CAS faculty, as well as possible collaborations with researchers in other areas of Rutgers and at other institutions. As well, the seminar is designed to establish a strong track record as a successful mechanism of training and research collaboration, in the interest of securing future (e.g., NIH T-32) grant funding. The seminar has been running since September, 2018 and has already served to strengthen collaborative connections of CAS faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students to each other as well as to those working in applied arenas (e.g., clinical, public health, policymaking).
