NIDA Hosts Iraqis

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) International Program hosted a group of four Iraqis taking part in the Iraq–Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Initiative. In 2008, Iraq and SAMHSA launched the initiative, in which multidisciplinary behavioral health teams from Iraq visit SAMHSA and host sites around the United States to learn about various interventions the teams want to adapt for implementation in Iraq.

NIDA's Mini-Meetings Encourage Research Exchange

NIDA is hosting small meetings in conjunction with larger, more broadly focused conferences to bring together drug abuse and addiction scientists to share research findings and explore potential collaborations. The mini-meetings include:

NIDA Supports Participants at NHSN Conference

The NIDA International Program supported nine researchers who participated in the 2012 National Hispanic Science Network (NHSN) 12th Annual International Conference. The conference was held September 26–29 in San Diego, California. The meeting focused on the integration of translational research and ways to meet health needs among subpopulations with a variety of comorbid diseases and differing genetic and environmental backgrounds.

Alert: International Scientific Meeting Scams

Scientists report a growing number of email messages containing fake conference invitations. It appears that the ultimate goal for these scammers is access to personal and financial information. The emails, on first glance, appear to be legitimate invitations to relevant and important meetings or conferences. Upon closer inspection, however, people have begun to notice subtle clues that suggest the invitation may not be real. In some cases, the scammers ask for a conference fee. In more sophisticated scams, the “conference organizer” offers airfare and accommodations.
