NIDA Genetic Consortium Meetings & Abstracts

March 2021 Meeting


Welcome to the 2021 Genetics and Epigenetics Cross-Cutting Research Team (GECCRT) Meeting! The GECCRT is sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and has members from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Institute on Mental Health (NIMH). Our mission is to develop NIDA’s portfolio of genetic and epigenetic research relevant to substance use disorders and addictive behaviors. The GECCRT coordinates our programs to meet strategic mission research objectives, including development of a workforce to meet current and future needs.

Major Goals of the GECCRT:

  • Support the discovery of gene variants and epigenetic modification associated with substance abuse and dependence.
  • Promote and facilitate the integration of novel genetic/genomic hypotheses, laboratory and statistical methodologies into studies of substance abuse.
  • Ensure training opportunities in addiction genetics for students and post-doctoral fellows.
  • Support the translation of significant reproducible findings in genetics/genomics research into clinical applications.

Meeting Dates and Times

  • Monday, March 8th: - 10:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, March 9th  - 10:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 10th - 10:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
