More on a possible reorganization of NIDA and NIAAA into a new addiction Institute

Yesterday, NIH Director Francis Collins issued a statement regarding a possible reorganization of NIDA and NIAAA indicating he had received the formal reccommendation from the Scientific Management Review Board to formulate a new addiction research Institute.

The statement indicated that a task force is being formed to determine which programs among NIH's 27 Institutes would be moved to the new Institute, and which programs currently within the portfolios of NIDA and NIAAA would be moved to other Institutes.

Drug Monkey published a interesting discussion of the process.
