CPDD-2020 Virtual meeting

The College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) — the longest standing organization in the U.S. that addresses problems of drug dependence, misuse, and abuse — held this year's annual conference virtually on June 22-24.

This conference serves as a forum bringing together basic scientists and clinical investigators from industry, academia, and government. Representatives of regulatory agencies, as well as scientists and professionals in a number of diverse disciplines interested in the biochemical, behavioral, and public health aspects of drug dependence participate. 

CPDD Scientific Meeting is held each June in conjunction with the annual NIDA Forum whose goal is to foster international cooperative research and the exchange of scientific information by drug abuse researchers. 

During a virtual poster session UIPHP experts presented the results of projects and studies that were conducted in Ukraine with the participation of the Ukrainian Institute on Public Health Policy:
