Genetics and Epigenetics Cross-Cutting Research Team

What We Do:

The NIDA Genetics and Epigenetics cross-cutting research team is a collaborative forum for developing NIDA’s portfolio of genetic and epigenetic research relevant to drug abuse and addiction. Since a variety of expertise is needed to effectively apply genetic and epigenetic methodologies to the problems of drug abuse (i.e., phenotypes, pharmacology, epidemiology, behavior, etc.), our team includes representation from multiple NIDA Divisions, Centers, and Offices. Working together, we coordinate our programs to meet strategic mission research objectives, including development of a workforce to meet current and future needs. Our team plans to support current and emerging avenues of research through program announcements and requests for applications.  We will also sponsor seminars and speakers to inform NIDA staff of new tools and topics in genetic and epigenetic research, and to develop staff knowledge in genomic research as it pertains to NIDA's overall mission to advance science on the causes and consequences of drug use and addiction and to apply that knowledge to improve individual and public health.
