The Center for Drug Abuse Research (CDAR) was established in 1994 to build Howard University’s capability to conduct drug abuse research, and to serve as a respository and resource for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the area of drug abuse research on African Americans. Within its overall mission, CDAR’s focus is on the epidemiology and prevention of drug abuse among African Americans from the prenatal period through adulthood. In recent years, CDAR has been a resource to international researchers, particularly in southern Africa, who are interested in developing culturally appropriate research for African populations.

CDAR is a link for coordinating interdisciplinary teams for responding to external sponsored research opportunities, and provides technical, scientific, and administrative assistance in the preparation of research and other grant applications. CDAR has convened several regional, national and international conferences on substance abuse and related issues.
