Dr. Tiouririne graduated from Algiers University in 1992 and trained in psychiatry both at Algiers and the Univeristy of Virginia. After joining professor Johnson's research team in 1997, first as a fellow and later as a faculty, Dr. Tiouririne developed special expertise in pharmacological treatment of alcoholism and other drugs of abuse. She is well experienced with clinical trials in addiction and is very familiar with FDA regulations and good clinical practice. She is a principal investigator on multiple NIH funded projects and a co-investigator on multiple other NIH funded grants.

Her special interests are medication development for the treatment of the addictions and understanding the underpinnings of drug craving associated with treatment response.
