Scott F. Stoltenberg, Ph.D.

Dr. Stoltenberg joined UMARC in 1996 as a postdoctoral fellow on the Center's NIAAA Institutional Training Grant (T32). During that time he developed his research skills and an interest in the biopsychosocial influences on risk for antisocial alcoholism. He funded his third postdoctoral year by obtaining an NRSA Individual Training Grant (F32). In 1999, after three years as a postdoc, Stoltenberg was appointed to a research-track faculty position at UMARC and obtained a 5-year Mentored Research Development Award from NIAAA to further study the genetic architecture of antisocial alcoholism. During this time he developed an interest in using computer simulation to better understand the complexities of heredity-behavior relations with a focus on how genetic variation in the serotonin neurotransmitter system influences impulsivity, and collaborated on several candidate gene association studies.

Dr. Stoltenberg is currently a faculty member in the Department of Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
