This charge has two critical components. The first is the strategic support for research across a broad range of disciplines related to addiction. The second is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination of research results to improve practice and inform policy related to drug abuse and addiction.  DTMC’s primary goal is to facilitate the development of therapies to treat substance use disorders (SUDs).  The Division also investigates the medical consequences of drug abuse, including HIV/AIDS; the Division’s work is highly impactful.  For example, DTMC designed and funded the clinical studies that led to the development of Nasal Narcan®, the first FDA-approved intranasal medication to treat opiate overdose. 

    The position offers a unique and exciting opportunity for scientific and managerial leadership in a highly dynamic and diverse area of health research.  As an Institute expert and the lead scientist on a diverse range of trials related to therapies for SUDs, the incumbent provides strategic vision in implementing and managing the design and execution of grant-funded clinical trials.    As a recognized national leader and expert in the field of drug addiction, the incumbent organizes research meetings, workshops, and symposia for such purposes as program development, assessment of current state of the field, and encourages new lines or areas of research that would be useful to the Institute.  On a national and international level, the Deputy Director, DTMC, represents the Division and liaises with universities, research institutions, pharmaceutical companies, and other government agencies to explain the purpose and objectives of DTMC’s programs and to stimulate the interest of scientists in submitting grant applications in areas of scientific priority for the Division.
