Institute for Addiction Science

The vision of IAS is to transform and unify the field of addiction science and substantially improve the lives of those touched by addiction. We aim to embody addiction science — a new transdisciplinary field of study operationalized by IAS that breaks down silos that have historically separated addiction scholars in different disciplines. By bringing scholars together and providing an infrastructure to stimulate synergy and collaboration, the IAS advances its mission to generate transdisciplinary addiction research and education programs that promote discovery and dissemination of novel and impactful approaches to understanding, preventing, and treating addiction. Led by Adam Leventhal, Daryl Davies, John Clapp, and Ricky Bluthenthal.
