Article Excerpt: The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has awarded a five-year $3.8 million grant to Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth’s Center for Technology and Behavioral Health. The award will support the launch of the new Northeast Node in NIDA’s National Clinical Trials Network (CTN), and clinical trials conducted by the Node will be supported by additional research project grants from NIDA, which is part of the National Institutes of Health.
“There is so much energy and enthusiasm not only among the members of the team here at Dartmouth, but also among the more than 400 healthcare partners who are linked to our new Node,” says Lisa Marsch, PhD, director of the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH), [professor] of psychiatry, and principal investigator on the new CTN Node. CTBH is a NIDA-funded national Center of Excellence that uses science to inform the development, rigorous evaluation, and sustainable implementation of mobile and web-based therapeutic tools for substance use disorders and mental health.
