Osama A. Abulseoud, M.D., of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., chose to study clinical and translational research because he hopes to make a difference for people with mental illness and dependency issues. In his research, he hopes to use deep brain stimulation to find a new treatment for certain difficult-to-treat cases of alcoholism. He and his colleagues are working to better understand the underlying neurobiology of addiction and how targets, such as glutamate, can be modified by deep brain stimulation in animal models of alcohol dependence.
