Prof. Henry R. Kranzler, M.D., PhD., is the Benjamin Rush Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Center for Studies of Addiction at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia USA. Trained as a physician, psychiatrist, and clinical investigator, Dr. Kranzler’s research on the molecular genetics of alcohol and drug use disorders and their precision pharmacological treatment has been supported since 1987 by grants from the U.S. National Institutes of Health. He has authored more than 500 journal articles and 100 book chapters and edited nine books. Since 2014, Dr. Kranzler has served as the Editor of Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, the official journal of ISBRA and RSA.
Bo Söderpalm, M.D., Ph.D., is Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Addiction Biology Unit at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Department of Psychiatry and Neurochemistry at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and a Chief psychiatrist at the Department of Addiction and Dependency, Sahlgrenska University Hospital. He is the co-founder of Sobrera Pharma AB. Söderpalm´s translational research has been supported by grants from the Swedish Research Council for 30 years. Main focus has been to use animal models for disclosing important mechanisms of action of alcohol in the brain reward system and to translate the findings into pharmacological treatments for patients with alcohol use disorder via randomized controlled trials. Söderpalm has published approx. 150 scientific articles and 20 book chapters.
