Section Cheif |

Dr. Stein received his Ph.D. in neurophysiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine where his interest in drug abuse research first developed. He then went on to do a postdoctoral fellowship at the California Institute of Technology with James Olds, a pioneer in brain reward mechanisms. Years later he was fortunate to be on faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin during the birth of fMRI. His group was among the first to employ this new technology to address questions in human drug abuse. He then joined NIDA-IRP in 2002 as Chief of the newly created Neuroimaging Research Branch.
