Francesca Filbey holds the Bert Moore Chair in BrainHealth and is the head of the Filbey Lab at the Center for BrainHealth. Dr. Filbey's research interests are focused on addictive disorders, specifically substance abuse and overeating. "The overarching goal across my line of translational research is to characterize factors that increase risk for addictive disorders. Specifically, I am interested in how early life factors such as period of exposure (e.g., adolescent onset of regular use) or early life stress mediate the neural mechanisms that are associated with addictive disorders, and how genetic risk moderates these effects." For more information about Professor Filbey see her Filbey Lab pages, her BBS People page and her Center for BrainHealth Researcher page.
