Maggie Mott, a graduate student in the Laboratory of the Neurobiology of Addiction in the Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology and Neuroscience at Louisiana State University, will give a virtual talk on “The Basic Science Side of Sex and Addiction” at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 11 via Zoom.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration for the Zoom link is required.

The presentation will focus on her dissertation work, the sexual pharmacophysiology of methamphetamine in females, where she uses rats as the model organism. She will also expand into previous work from her lab as well as the relevance of utilizing females as model organisms in substance use disorder research, a relatively novel practice.

Mott’s dissertation work centers on the intersection of methamphetamine use disorder and female sexual function.

This talk is sponsored by the Rural Drug Addiction Research Center, and it is an installment within their seminar series.
