Marsha Bates, Acting Director

The Center of Alcohol Studies (CAS), the world's oldest alcohol research center, is a multidisciplinary institute dedicated to acquisition and dissemination of knowledge on psychoactive substance use and related phenomena. Its primary emphasis is on alcohol use and consequences. The center's core program of basic and applied research is conducted by scientists drawn chiefly from the biological sciences (principally biochemistry and neuropharmacology), psychology (clinical and experimental), and sociology. Faculty members of the Basic Sciences Division (comprised of three distinct laboratories), the Clinical Division, and the Prevention Research and Services Division are the principal contributors to this center's focus. The Information Services Division houses the center's extensive research library and a collection of more than 100,000 research and professional materials on all aspects of alcohol use and abuse. It also publishes the internationally recognized Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs. The Education and Training Division conducts continuing professional education seminars throughout the academic year and one weeklong summer program. The center offers graduate courses in alcohol studies to students enrolled in advanced-degree programs at Rutgers who wish to pursue a special concentration in alcohol or other substance use/abuse studies. Additionally, a number of research opportunities are available with center faculty, with the extensive network of interdisciplinary visiting professors to the center, or with one of the center's collaborative institutions.
