Comment on New NIH Center

Input lines are open for the National Institute of Substance Use and Addiction Disorders.

NIH Campus

The National Institutes of Health is seeking input from the scientific community on the new National Institute of Substance Use and Addiction Disorders (working title), scheduled to open in 2014.

The proposed institute is the result of a November 2010 recommendation from the Scientific Management Review Board that the NIH should reorganize all substance use, abuse, and addiction-related research at the Institutes. Both the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism will be dissolved and their research programs folded into the new institute.

The NIH is asking for comments about “potential scientific opportunities and public health needs” that should be included in the new Institute’s strategic plan. Those comments can be submitted electronically, and will be accepted through May 11, 2012. The NIH will also conduct a series of public meetings to discuss the new Institute, which will be posted on the NIH’s feedback website.
