7th International Conference on Addictive Disorders and Alcoholism
Tripti Grover Arora
All India Institute of Medical Sciences, India
Tripti has been a life science researcher with interests in varied fields, including Instrumentation, Bioinformatics and Molecular biology. With her exposure varying from Plant molecular biology to Genetics, she has been specializing in Human Genetics from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), India. With special focus on Alcohol/Opioid addictions, she has been exploring this complex disorder in strengthening the associations among genes. Addiction being a complex disorder has its roots originating both from environment as well as genes. While the environment may vary from child abuse to peer pressure in adolescence, its development and thereafter progression is likely to develop due to Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in the genes. Tripti will be sharing her experience and glimpse in providing better insights on the genetics of Alcohol dependence.
