Substance Abuse Research

Nancy Campbell (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and Joseph Spillane (University of Florida) have recently launched a website featuring an electronic archive of numerous oral histories of addiction researchers. The oral histories were collected as part of a multi-year project funded by the NSF, the University of Michigan Substance Abuse Research Center, and the College on Problems of Drug Dependence.

The goal of the project was to document the the evolution of the drug abuse field through the stories of senior researchers. The addiction field is a complex, multidisciplinary field of inquiry, and the interviews cover numerous fields--including chemistry, pharmacology, neuroscience, genetics, sociology. At present, there are over thirty complete interview transcripts posted (with nearly twenty more soon to be added), along with a detailed "roadmap" to the site prepared by Drs. Campbell and Spillane.

The site may be found here.
