This paper was a team effort to use body weight data that we’d collected as part of the methamphetamine studies. Since these animals had been selected for divergent body size prior to inbreeding we figured there would be a number

This is the first R01 that I’ve ever had to renew, luckily I got it on the first try! The grant was funded by NIDA and is titled “Systems genetic analysis of methamphetamine’s motivational effects in a mouse AIL” and
