Jonathan Hollander Wins NIH Awards
Jonathan Hollander, research associate in The Scripps Research Institute's Kenny lab on the Jupiter, Florida campus, has won a prestigious travel award from the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to attend the American Psychological Association's annual convention in Boston August 14 - 17. He will present a project titled "Role of Orexin-1 Receptors in Nicotine Reinforcement."

In addition, Hollander has received a three-year Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award from the NIH. According to the NIH, the purpose of the award "is to help ensure that highly trained physician/scientists will be available in adequate numbers and in the appropriate research areas and fields to meet the nation's mental health, drug abuse and addiction, alcohol abuse and alcoholism, and environmental health sciences research needs." The award will help fund Hollander's studies on the neurobiology of nicotine dependence.
