2022 - Research.com Best Scientist Award
2017 - Member of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM)
2001 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Neuroscience, Addiction and Dopamine are his primary areas of study. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Self-administration and Antagonist. His Internal medicine research incorporates elements of Ethanol, Anesthesia and Elevated plus maze.
His research investigates the connection with Addiction and areas like Drug which intersect with concerns in Clinical psychology. His Dopamine research includes themes of Opioid peptide and Pharmacology. In his work, Mecamylamine is strongly intertwined with Nicotine, which is a subfield of Pharmacology.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Addiction. Internal medicine is frequently linked to Anesthesia in his study. His research investigates the connection between Endocrinology and topics such as Ethanol that intersect with problems in Alcohol.
His work is connected to Dopamine, Nucleus accumbens, Extended amygdala, Neurochemical and Ventral tegmental area, as a part of Neuroscience. His research in Pharmacology tackles topics such as Opiate which are related to areas like Morphine. His research investigates the connection between Addiction and topics such as Brain stimulation reward that intersect with issues in Reward system.
His primary scientific interests are in Addiction, Neuroscience, Internal medicine, Pharmacology and Endocrinology. His study in Addiction is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Drug, Reward system and Clinical psychology. His work on Neuroscience deals in particular with Extended amygdala, Nucleus accumbens, Central nucleus of the amygdala, Dopamine and Brain stimulation reward.
His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Alcohol dependence and Alcohol use disorder. In his study, Chronic pain is inextricably linked to Opioid, which falls within the broad field of Pharmacology. George F. Koob has researched Endocrinology in several fields, including Alcohol, Receptor and Ethanol.
George F. Koob spends much of his time researching Addiction, Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Alcohol dependence and Internal medicine. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Extended amygdala, Ventral striatum and Disease. George F. Koob is involved in the study of Pharmacology that focuses on Self-administration in particular.
In his study, Glucocorticoid receptor, Nicotinic agonist, Stria terminalis and Abstinence is strongly linked to Central nucleus of the amygdala, which falls under the umbrella field of Alcohol dependence. His Internal medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endocrinology and Alcohol use disorder. Many of his studies on Endocrinology apply to κ-opioid receptor as well.
