Organization profile

Dramatic scientific advances over the past two decades have revolutionized our understanding of alcohol and drug abuse. Foremost among these developments is the clear understanding that alcohol and drug addictions are treatable diseases of the brain.

The Waggoner Center for Alcohol and Addiction Research was created to research these neurological disorders. Established in 1999 as an organized research unit of the College of Natural Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin, the Center was made possible by a generous gift from M. June and J. Virgil Waggoner and matching university funds.
