Dr Loren Parsons
With profound sadness, staff at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism note the passing of Loren (Larry) Parsons, Ph.D., of the Committee on the Neurobiology of Addictive Disorders (CNAD) at The Scripps Research Institute.  Colleagues remember Dr. Parsons as a brilliant neuroscientist, a dynamic leader in CNAD and a wonderful, well-loved human being. Dr. Parsons developed a spectacular research program at TSRI and has made seminal contributions that will remain his legacy.
