[DIV28SUPER] Reminder for Online Anonymous Survey on Minority/Foreign-born Issues within APA Division 28

This is the reminder of the online anonymous survey on minority/foreign-born issues. If you are still interested in completing the survey, please do so before the survey ending date of May 1st.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Under the commission of Mark Greenwald, the current president of APA Division 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse), we have formed a focus group of minority and foreign-born researchers who will work together to develop recommendations for ways the Division can encourage, support and provide assistance to minority and foreign-born researchers.  
 
We have currently developed a questionnaire to identify which direction to proceed with the focus group.  The questionnaire is targeting not only minority and foreign-born researchers but also those who have worked with minority and foreign-born mentors and students.  If you have such experiences and would like to contribute your experiences by filling out the questionnaire, please go to the following link and fill out the questionnaire according to the instruction.  The whole process takes no more than 10 minutes. Your responses will be completely anonymous and will not be connected to your identity in any way.

Drug addiction is the most costly neuropsychiatric disorder faced by our nation. Acute and repeated exposure to drugs produces neuroadaption and long-term memory of the experience, but the cellular and molecular processes involved are only partially understood. The primary objective of the proposed workshop is to provide an intense dialogue of the fundamentals, state-of-the-art advances and major gaps in the cell and molecular biology of drug addiction.Targeted to new or experienced investigators, the workshop will combine formal presentations and informal discussions to convey the merits and excitement of cellular and molecular approaches to drug addiction research. With the advent of genomics and proteomics, an extraordinary opportunity now exists to develop comprehensive models of neuroadaptative processes fundamental to addiction, withdrawal, craving, and relapse to drug use and to brain function, in general. A range of disciplines and topics will be represented, including noninvasive brain imaging to identify drug targets and adaptive processes; neuroadaptative processes at the molecular and cellular level, neural networks and their modulation, the relevance of genotype to susceptibility and drug response; tolerance and adaptation at the cellular level and approaches to exploiting the daunting volume generated by neuroinformatics. This workshop will provide an integrated view of current and novel research on neuroadaptive responses to addiction, foster discussion on collaboration and integration, provide critical information needed to construct a model of addiction as a disease and novel molecular targets for biological treatments. Beyond the plane of scientific endeavor, the information is vital for formulating public policy and for enlightening the public on the neurobiological consequences of drug use and addiction. The workshop is designed to generate interest in this level of analysis, open conduits for collaborations and present novel routes to investigating the neurobiology of addictive drugs.

[DIV28SUPER] Helping Japanese scientists displaced by Japan's natural disasters

Dear APA Division 28 members:

Several scientific societies, including APA, are seeking to aid scientists adversely affected by Japan's natural disasters.  A significant concern is that some Japanese scientists will be displaced until infrastructure can be rebuilt.  

During the recovery period of this humanitarian crisis, we advocate that you consider offering a position in your laboratory to a fellow scientist to facilitate their research progress and/or training.  

Several web sites offer information that enable you to assist:

http://www.nihjsa.org/

Please pass this information along to colleagues who may be able to help.

Thank you,

[DIV28M] Scientist Spotlight Series: April 2011

Hello,

Please enjoy this April Edition of the Scientist Spotlight!

Kelly and Sarah

-------------------------------------------
Scientist Spotlight is a monthly series that asks senior and mid-level scientists to provide information on how they choose to balance work and life responsibilities. This column is in response to an overwhelming request from Early Career Psychologists that more information (and assistance) in learning how to balance work and life be made available.  We are hopeful that by reading how different scientists balance work and life goals and responsibilities, graduate students and Early Career Psychologists will be better prepared to develop methods for being successful in science while still meeting personal life goals. Overall, we hope you find this series useful and enjoyable!

Please contact Kelly Dunn (kdunn9@jhmi.edu) or Sarah Tragesser (stragesser@tricity.wsu.edu) to nominate someone to be highlighted in this series.
