Currently, there are over 30 multidisciplinary faculty members in the division with expertise ranging from pharmacology and psychology, to adult and child psychiatry. In addition, there are a number of affiliated faculty with substance abuse research expertise in other departments, other colleges at the university, or in other divisions in the Department of Psychiatry that are closely associated with the Addiction Sciences Division (ASD) faculty and attend ASD-related activities and programs. The faculty ranks are nearly equally divided among Instructor, Assistant, Associate, and Professor levels, demonstrating a strong pipeline of junior investigators, combined with significant senior leadership at the top levels.
