NIDA highlights new publication co-authored by Phil Haydon

In its reports on Latest Science the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) highlighted an upcoming publication co-authored by GliaCure President Phil Haydon. Haydon and his collaborators at the University of Pennsylvania have discovered that glia likely play a key role in relapse of individuals addicted to cocaine. Glia may thus provide a target for addiction to cocaine and other drugs.
