Andrew Chambers, MD
Associate Professor of Psychiatry

Dr. Andrew Chambers is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Indiana University School of Medicine. His work in the Laboratory for Translational Neuroscience of Dual Diagnosis & Development focuses on exploring causal mechanisms in the brain responsible for extremely high rates of addictions co-morbidity in mental illness.

Because both addictions and mental illnesses are in large part neurodevelopmental disorders in which adolescence is a critical transition phase, he is also interested in how the adolescent brain re-wires normally, or abnormally, in mental illnesses as intertwined with the early stages of drug addictions.
