Alcohol and Drug Abuse Center

(Approved by the Board of Regents, 1991)
Patricia Molina, MD, PhD, Director

The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Center stimulates interdisciplinary collaborative efforts for research and teaching and the dissemination of pertinent information in the area of alcohol and drug abuse. This Center enhances the research capabilities of scientists, stimulates collaborative research efforts, and strengthens educational activities in the biomedical aspects of alcohol and substance abuse throughout the Health Sciences Center. The Center is directed toward building upon existing strength, expanding and elevating our reputation in substance-abuse research, treatment, and prevention. A strong focus of the center is to promote discovery in the field of alcohol and drugs of abuse and their impact on HIV disease prevention, progression and treatment. While major components of the program’s activities are focused on biomedical research, continued growth has now involved community based intervention programs.
