The Neuroscience of Addiction (formerly called Cellular Biology of Addiction) was first offered in 2001 by Randy Blakely, Bertha Madras, and Nora Volkow as a biennial course. In 2015, the course began to be offered annually - in CSHL on the years that end with an odd number, and in Europe on the other years - and over 230 scientists have participated in the lecture-based course. To interact with your fellow alums, make sure to join the alumni community on Facebook and Twitter.
