Affinity Groups

This group of faculty members focus on research, publications and advocacy to support evidence-based policy development. 

Researchers with the focus on the science of addiction and recovery in the adolescent, young adult (AYA) target population work together on innovative, convergent science to prevent, intervene and treat AYA addiction. 

The goal of the translational psychobiology affinity group is to bring together psychobiologists to bridge the gap between bench and bedside, and to facilitate the flow of scientific discovery to practical application. 

This affinity group is responsible for enhancing addiction related education from the community level throughout the highest levels of higher education to enhance our community’s ability to serve and treat individuals with addiction. 

Addiction service delivery is a complex phenomenon that requires scientific rigor to support evidence-based activities along the entire spectrum of service from prevention to sustaining recovery.  

Researching the social determinants of health, health disparities and other confounding factors contributing to our nation’s addiction crisis is the focus of this affinity group – a true collaboration amongst a large number of disciplines.
