Alcohol use disorders are a major problem that begins as early as high school and continues for a lifetime of struggle. The basis of our research is using non-human primates to model excessive drinking seen with people. Specifically, rhesus monkeys show a range of excessive alcohol drinking (up to >3.0 g/kg or a 12 drink equivalent/day) over long periods of time (6-18 months) with associated disease processes. As a valuable resource, we have established a monkey alcohol tissue research (MATRR) bank, which coordinates bioinformatics analyses and distribution of appropriate tissue samples to the alcohol research community. This resource provides novel data for hypothesis testing relating the risk for and consequences of alcohol consumption and serve to bridge the gap between rodent and human studies. The longitudinal data collected on these monkeys includes gene expression, biochemistry profiles, MRIs, hormone levels, and cognitive testing. These protocols span stages of drinking from alcohol naive to early alcohol exposure to chronic abuse. This internship position will not include any interaction with live animals or tissues. Instead, the position will focus on data analyses to address the relationship between alcohol drinking and a subset of the data. The intern will read, write, interpret and present data.
