Lectures & Conferences
The CPDA (Chemistry and Pharmacology of Drug Abuse) conference taking place on the campus of Northeastern University in Boston, MA brings together medicinal chemists and pharmacologists annually to discuss the latest research in this area and how it applies to the design and testing of future therapies for drug addiction. The conference serves as an interdisciplinary exposition of the prior year’s most important, research-related advances in drug-abuse research.
The topics emphasize laboratory findings in medicinal chemistry that inform the pharmacology and pathological mechanisms underlying addiction and the search for SUD pharmacotherapies. Attracting researchers, healthcare providers and public-health officials to the Boston area, the premiere biotechnology hub and home to leading biomedical research-intensive clinical centers (e.g., McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School) in SUD research and treatment, the CPDA Conference strives to cultivate a place of learning and discussion in order to continue to combat the issue of SUD in this country and internationally.
