...towards novel therapies to treat prescription opioid abuse
The Pravetoni lab focuses on the pre-clinical development of novel therapies for drug addiction. The lab seeks to uncover the mechanisms underlying efficacy of treatment in animal models of prescription opioid abuse and nociception. This is achieved through the implementation of a variety of strategies used to generate more effective vaccines or antibody-based therapies against drugs of abuse, in addition to other unmet medical needs such as antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

We recently moved to the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Minnesota and are actively looking to expand our lab team. Click here to see current openings!
