Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is highly co-morbid with other CNS disorders that include stress and anxiety disorders, pain, CNS injury and other substance use disorders. Alcohol effects on the CNS also differ according to the age and sex of the affected individual, highlighting the need to understand individual variability in AUDs along with their comorbidities. The program for the 2022 meeting of the Alcohol and the Nervous System Gordon Research Conference will include presentations that focus on basic and clinical research investigating the neurobiology of AUD, especially in the context of these prevalent comorbidities and biological vulnerabilities. The Chairs and Vice Chairs will make it a priority to create a meeting program that includes basic and clinical research, and that is diverse by including presenters stratified across career stage, sex/gender, ethnicity, sexual identity and geographical region. The focus on CNS conditions that are co-morbid with AUD will provide a unique opportunity to create new networking and collaborative opportunities for the Alcohol CNS field.
