The Center of Alcohol Studies (CAS), the world's oldest alcoholresearch center, is a multidisciplinary institute dedicated toacquisition and dissemination of knowledge on psychoactive substanceuse and related phenomena. Its primary emphasis is on alcohol use andconsequences. The center's core program of basic and applied researchis conducted by scientists drawn chiefly from the biological sciences(principally biochemistry and neuropharmacology), psychology (clinicaland experimental), and sociology. Faculty members of the Basic SciencesDivision (comprised of three distinct laboratories), the ClinicalDivision, and the Prevention Research and Services Division are theprincipal contributors to this center's focus. The Information ServicesDivision houses the center's extensive research library and acollection of more than 100,000 research and professional materials onall aspects of alcohol use and abuse. It also publishes theinternationally recognized Journal of Studies on Alcohol.TheEducation and Training Division conducts continuingprofessional-education seminars throughout the academic year and twoweeklong summer programs. The center offers graduate courses in alcoholstudies to students enrolled in advanced-degree programs at Rutgers whowish to pursue a special concentration in alcohol or other substanceuse/abuse studies. Additionally, a number of research opportunities areavailable with center faculty, with the extensive network ofinterdisciplinary visiting professors to the center, or with one of thecenter's collaboration institutions.
