Welcome to Dr. Mustafa al’Absi’s Laboratory

al’Absi’s Lab includes sites located within the University of Minnesota Medical School campuses in Duluth and in Minneapolis. The laboratory is engaged in various research and training activities focusing on psychophysiological, neurobiological, and behavioral mechanisms mediating effects of stress and early life adversity and on addictive behaviors (tobacco, cannabis, alcohol, and khat) and mental health comorbidity. Our research program includes collaboration with multiple international partners in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Our approach is transdisciplinary, and our collaborators include experts in multiple fields of medicine, physiology, pharmacology, and behavioral sciences.
