Slide 2

NIDA Basic Science Review Work Group First Meeting November 17-18, 2005 Second Meeting March 8-9, 2006 NIDA Council Members Other Members Linda Porrino, Ph.D, Chair Barry Lester, Ph.D. John P. Rice, Ph.D. Fellow Cabral, Ph.D. Straight to the point Ivy Carroll, Ph.D Kathryn Cunningham, Ph.D Yasmin Hurd, Ph.D. Michael Nader, Ph.D. Marina Picciotto, Ph.D. Stanley Watson, M.D., Ph.D.

Slide 3

NIDA Basic Science Review Work Group Review of the ebb and flow Basic Science program portfolio Recommendations to fortify the momentum program Input into the 5-year anticipate NIDA's Basic Science program with an accentuation on: Genetic weakness and assurance Epigenetics (associations of environment and hereditary qualities) The hereditary qualities and neurobiology of social conduct Molecular science of enslavement Examination of the association and administration of DBNBR and its connections with other NIDA Divisions/Centers Charge: To create a composed report that incorporates…

Slide 4

Review Findings Cross-cutting discoveries and suggestions Theme-particular discoveries and proposals Processes and instruments of fixation Genetic defenselessness to medication manhandle Pain and absense of pain AIDS, HCV, virology Development Chemistry and restorative science Social neuroscience

Slide 5

Cross-cutting Findings: Accomplishments Exceptionally solid and ground breaking portfolio Recruitment of fabulous researchers in and outside the field of substance mishandle Strong initiative and staff Ability to distinguish new ranges of significance to NIDA and select a minimum amount to the territory Training of new agents Efforts to build sex and minority differing qualities Thematic approach that cuts crosswise over branches

Slide 6

Cross-cutting Findings: Opportunities Encouraging interpretation crosswise over NIDA Divisions Formation of a Task Force on Translational Addiction Research Assignment of awards to program staff of more than one Division Formation of an Innovation Committee made of up of delegates from every Division to give support to potential high result applications past the compensation line Focus on advancement of enhanced creature models with more prominent prescient esteem Improve spread of data about NIDA administrations Continue endeavors to urge grantees to use Roadmap and Blueprint financing components

Slide 7

Theme-Specific Findings: Accomplishments Establishment of the NIDA Genetics Consortium and the studies using these assets Expanding concentrates on over the life expectancy: Addition of studies in pre-adulthood to the advancement portfolio Development of projects in the zone of lipidomics Program for the circulation of medications and different materials Basic science investigations of virology and immunology Continued advancement of creature models that better copy different parts of the human medication encounter

Slide 8

Theme-Specific Findings: Opportunities Addition of neurobiology of social conduct as a topical region with an accentuation on hereditary qualities and epigenetic concentrates Further accentuation on formative studies through the foundation of a Developmental Research Program in the Office of the Director Expanded accentuation on the Genetics Consortium Continued accentuation on HIV/AIDS, especially creature models and communications past opioids Continued accentuation on the improvement of sheltered and successful agony meds

Slide 9

Conclusions/Summary DBNBR has built up solid research programs fundamental to the mission of NIDA: to offer the force of science as a powerful influence for issues of medication mishandle. DBNBR assumes a basic part in interpretation of fundamental science directed in their division to investigations of human patients led in other NIDA divisions Opportunities to improve essential science include: Investment in developing territories of social neuroscience and epigenetics Strengthened dispersal of administrations Continued cultivating of the professions of new specialists Continued accentuation on the "transformation" in the ways science will be led later on
