The FY21 ASADRP Consortium Award will support the establishment of a Consortium whose purpose is to conduct multidisciplinary, team-based translational research efforts to identify promising compounds and conduct preclinical and clinical research to test potential medications or medication combinations in humans with ASUD and comorbid PTSD and other psychological disorders, and to explore precision medicine tools for matching patients to these medications. The goal of this research is to reduce the burden of ASUD in society, to include reducing the overall number of opioid-related overdose deaths.
The Consortium will build on the research previously supported by two ASADRP consortia: Institute for Translational Neuroscience and Pharmacotherapies for Alcohol and Substance Abuse. Information about the ASADRP can be found at https://cdmrp.army.mil/asadrp/default.
The Consortium will ultimately consist of a single management core as well as basic research and clinical trial sites. The Consortium participants will be jointly responsible for prioritizing, proposing, conducting, and analyzing basic research and clinical trials and developing a roadmap to translate basic science knowledge into enhanced clinical pharmacological treatment protocols for ASUD.
