Kimberly Nixon, PHD

The Nixon Lab just relocated from the University of Kentucky and is looking for talented, highly motivated individuals to join our team.  Check out UT Jobs or email Dr. Nixon directly.  We are hiring at all levels.


The Nixon laboratory focuses on novel mechanisms of and drug discovery for alcoholic neuropathology. This two-prong approach of novel target identification coupled with drug discovery has allowed us to make seminal discoveries in new mechanisms that contribute to brain damage and recovery in alcohol use disorders, then use those discoveries to drive the development of novel approaches for the treatment of alcohol use disorders.
