Institute Announces Posters Selected for the 2010 NCRG Conference

by: Christine Reilly | Sep 30, 2010

Research on genetics, Texas Hold’em, decision-making, college gambling and using videogames in the treatment of gambling disorders are just a few of the intriguing topics of this year’s posters that will be presented at the 2010 NCRG Conference on Gambling and Addiction.

The Institute for Research on Gambling Disorders selected 35 posters for the poster session on Sunday, Nov. 14, 2010. The annual poster session showcases exciting new research in the field, giving investigators the opportunity to report their research findings and converse with conference attendees about their projects. Many of the poster presenters are young investigators, which provides conference attendees the chance to meet the next generation of gambling researchers. Reflecting the increasing international presence at the annual NCRG conference, many of this year’s poster presenters come from outside the U.S., including Canada, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Spain and South Africa.

A committee led by Harold Wynne, Ph.D., member of the institute’s Scientific Advisory Board and president of Wynne Resources, will evaluate the presentations and award a prize for outstanding poster during the conference luncheon on Monday, Nov. 15.
