Areas of Research

Dr. Lê studies biological processes involved in the initiation and maintenance of alcohol dependences using preclinical animal models. He is investigating the neurochemical mechanisms underlying the effects of stress on relapses to alcohol. Dr.  Lê is examining the interaction between Corticotropin Releasing Factor (CRF) and serotonin as well as the interaction between CRF and the noradrenergic system in stress-induced relapse to alcohol and drugs. Dr.  Lê is also investigating  the biological bases for the co-abuse of alcohol and nicotine, particularly how nicotine might strengthen alcohol dependence as about 80 percent of alcoholics are smokers.
