As a national leader in addiction research, UC COM has expanded its scope by establishing the Center for Addiction Research (CAR), including investigators working on opioid, stimulant, cannabis, and alcohol use disorders.
Our investigators are known as leaders in addiction research for their work on multi-center cooperative research programs including the Ohio Valley Node of the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network and the Healing Communities Study. The CAR encourages collaborations that are cross-disciplinary
and span the translational science spectrum to accelerate scientific progress.
Three main areas of Addiction Research
- Addiction treatment development and testing
- Perinatal addiction and developmental consequences
- Population health and health services
The University of Cincinnati offers a number of research resources, with their Core Facilities.
