Determining addiction - genes and substance use

Tamara Phillips, John Crabbe

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Does having alcoholic parents make you more susceptible to alcohol problems? Why do some people develop drink or drug problems while others in the same family do not? How much can genetic research tell us about why drink and drugs can affect people in so many different ways? With genetic research discovering increasing links with behaviour we invited two of the leading addiction and gene researchers to explain the science. Tamara Phillips and John Crabbe uncover the ever-emerging world of genetic research and addiction theory.
