Florida Receives NIDA Grant to Establish Substance Abuse Training Center in Public Health

The University of Florida has received a $1.5 million five-year T32 training grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to train new public health substance abuse researchers. “There are increased health disparities related to the harmful consequences of drug use and a significant shortage of scientists in the drug abuse field,” said Dr. Linda B. Cottler, the grant’s lead investigator and dean’s professor and chair of the department of epidemiology at the University of Florida College of Public Health and Health Professions and the College of Medicine.
