Overview

This valuable book serves as a forum for the communication of ideas between all segments of the research and treatment communities. Scientists and clinicians examine the exciting endeavors in science that have produced medical knowledge applicable to a wide spectrum of treatment and prevention efforts. The topics—from studies on the molecular actions of alcohol to clinical studies with human subjects—underscore the complexity of alcoholism and focus on both the biological and environmental determinants contributing to the etiology of the disorder.

Contributors from the fields of biology, chemistry, neurology, child health, gastroenterology, genetics, psychiatry, and numerous other specialties describe the fascinating collaborative ventures that have enhanced the opportunities to apply the latest technology and medical knowledge to studies of alcohol's actions and alcoholism. This need to understand alcoholism at all levels of biologic and social complexity is highlighted throughout this scholarly volume.

Alcohol Research From Bench to Bedside contains the published proceedings of a symposium sponsored by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in 1987, as part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the National Institutes of Health.
