J. Paul Taylor, MD, PhD, Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Chairman, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology Edward F. Barry Endowed Chair of Cell and Molecular Biology, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis, TN Eukaryotic cells partition their contents into numerous specialized structures termed organelles that create microenvironments to facilitate specific functions. Membrane-less organelles such as ribonucleoprotein (RNP) granules differ from classical...

Marina E. Wolf, Ph.D. Professor, Chair, Neuroscience Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science The persistence of drug craving, even after long periods of abstinence, presents a major challenge when providing treatment for drug addiction. Craving is often triggered by cues or contexts previously associated with drug use. Surprisingly, such cue-induced craving progressively intensifies (incubates) over the first weeks of forced abstinence and withdrawal, and then remains high for...
