VA Alcohol Research Center

General Information

Established in 1991 by John Krystal, MD, the VA Alcohol Center (also known as the ARC) has quickly become a unique resource for both veterans and the VA hospital by providing new knowledge into the neurobiology, genetics, and treatment of alcoholism and comorbid conditions.  Its main goal is to uncover basic mechanisms underlying alcoholism and to translate these mechanisms into advances in the care of alcoholic veterans.  The keys to the center’s continued vitality, generativity, and high impact include its commitment to developing the careers of young investigators, its ability to recruit established investigators and to synergize with the technologies available through the Yale University School of Medicine
