Institute of NeuroImmune Pharmacology


About the Institute


The Institute of NeuroImmune Pharmacology (I-NIP) at Seton Hall University (SHU) is committed to bringing knowledge of neuroimmune pharmacology to life via research, teaching, and community service. 

Current research at the I-NIP focuses on the: (1) bi-directional interaction between drug abuse and microbial infection, including HIV, in the central nervous system; (2) molecular mechanisms underlying nicotine’s modulatory effects on learning behavior in the presence of HIV-1 viral proteins; (3) age-dependent developmental changes in the neurotransmitter systems in the brain; and (4) alcohol related behavior disorders in the adolescent. 

The I-NIP participates in the formal curricula and Academic Exposition at SHU as well as the teaching and learning workshops at the NeuroImmune Pharmacology Colloquia. The I-NIP cultivates research among and between the basic and social sciences, and prides itself on fostering translational research from the laboratory bench to the community.
