The philosophy of our T32 program asserts that to effectively impact the problems of addiction and mental illness, one must be fully aware of their co-existence, etiologies, phenomenology, and clinical manifestations. Moreover, knowledge of clinical approaches and the healthcare systems that serve those with addiction and mental illness is necessary to inform the questions to be asked in laboratory and clinical research studies. Our co-occurring disorders-focused program will ensure the development of scientists with greater knowledge about the scope of issues that science must address to effectively impact addiction and mental illness. This new cohort of young investigators will be equipped with broad areas of expertise and a commitment to multidisciplinary approaches to their scientific questions of interest.
