A Conversation with Dr. Nora Volkow
Director, The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)


Wednesday, January 27, 2021 / 1 – 2 pm ET

NIDA supports most of the world’s research on the health aspects of drug use and addiction.

Dr. Volkow’s work has been instrumental in demonstrating that drug addiction is a disease of the human brain.

As a research psychiatrist and scientist, Dr. Volkow pioneered the use of brain imaging to investigate the toxic and addictive properties of abusable drugs.

Her studies have documented changes in the dopamine system affecting, among others, the functions of frontal brain regions involved with motivation and self-regulation in addiction.

She has also made important contributions to the neurobiology of obesity, ADHD, and aging and to the imaging field.

Yes, Addiction is a disease

How do we prevent, treat and recover from addiction?
