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.
