Congratulations to Dr. Marsida Kallupi

Congratulations to Dr. Marsida Kallupi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego, for being selected for funding by the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program (TRDRP). The title of the award is "Effect of CBD on nicotine addiction: evidence from translational models of nicotine intake in rats". The award will further Dr. Kallupi's research where preliminary results showed that CBD completely prevented somatic signs of withdrawal and decreased hyperalgesia in both male and female rats, supporting the hypothesis that CBD may prevent the psychostimulant effects of nicotine and the development of addiction-like behaviors.
