Alcohol Research Training in Neurosciences
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has awarded The University of Texas at Austin an Institutional Research Training Grant.
The Alcohol Training Grant provides stipends for seven predoctoral and two postdoctoral fellows who will be broadly and intensively trained to conduct research on alcoholism. Training areas span the breadth of state-of-the-art approaches including molecular biology and genetics, electrophysiology, cellular imaging, neurochemistry and behavior. Research models include both animal and human.
Toxicology Training Program
The toxicology training program provides training in molecular toxicology and environmental disease. It is an NIEHS-supported program that prepares pre- and post-doctoral trainees for careers in biomedical research with an environmental health perspective. The program is designed to educate and train pre- and postdoctoral students to expertly solve the complex problems and challenges facing contemporary professionals in toxicology and environmental health sciences.
Pharmacology & Toxicology Research Centers
Center For Molecular & Cellular Toxicology (CMCT)
The CMCT fosters interdisciplinary research collaborations and provides the prerequisite ancillary research infrastructure to support interdisciplinary graduate training programs. Faculty participating in the Center therefore represent a wide variety of scientific disciplines: Pharmacology, Toxicology, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Neuroscience, Nutrition, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Marine Biology, and Civil and Mechanical Engineering.
Addiction Science Research & Education Center (ASREC)
Presented by faculty at The University of Texas, Addiction Science Research and Education Center as a service to professionals, clinicians, and the public. Funded by a science education grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
Waggoner Center for Alcohol and Addiction Research (WCAAR)
- The objective is to create the world’s premier center for alcohol and addiction research, thereby developing solutions for the prevention and cure of alcoholism.
- Investigators from the Colleges of Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts and Pharmacy explore alcohol and drug actions at the molecular, electrophysiological and behavioral levels. Interdisciplinary collaborations allow the development of new tools and research approaches not possible in any one laboratory.

Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology
The Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology focuses efforts on the revolutionary developments occurring in molecular biology, genetics, cell biology, and genomics. The objectives of the ICMB are:
- To build a world-class multidisciplinary research and teaching center in cellular and molecular biology
- To focus basic research efforts on molecular genetics and molecular biology problems that will advance our understanding of disease processes and methods for therapy or cure
- To build a multidisciplinary center of excellence for biotechnology
Environmental Science Institute (ESI)
The Environmental Science Institute advances the understanding of the environment and sustainability through the development of interdisciplinary research, education and outreach programs.
