Maarten Reith, Ph.D.

In order to better guide the development of medications for the treatment of dependence on cocaine or amphetamines, it is important to increase our understanding of the targets for these compounds, and one important target is the dopamine transporter (DAT). Thus, much of the research in the Reith lab deals with the structure, function, and regulation of DAT. The link between drug reward and natural reward is intriguing and suggests that treatments for drug abuse could also be effective as treatments of eating disorders.
