NIH director rejects recommendation to create new addiction institute

Dr. Francis Collins, director of the NIH, announced on Friday that he is rejecting a recommendation from the NIH's Scientific Management Review Board (SMRB) that NIH establish a new institute focused on substance use, abuse, and addiction-related research. As such, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) will retain their institutional identities. Dr. Collins said he "concluded that it is more appropriate for NIH to pursue functional integration, rather than major structural reorganization, to advance substance use, abuse, and addiction-related research."
