Research group on drugs of abuse
Alcohol and drugs of abuse are serious risk factors for disease and early death. Knowledge about drugs of abuse is required to be able to reduce the harmful effects.
The main research aims in our group are to provide more knowledge about impact of drugs of abuse and alcohol on mortality risk, acute disease and injuries, mechanisms of action and continuous improvement of analytical methods and techniques.
We combine analyses of a large number of drugs of abuse, neurotransmitters, biological markers and hormones in different biological matrices with studies in rodents, humans and registry data.
