Institute for Drug and Alcohol Studies

The Institute was established at VCU to promote excellence in research and education on substance abuse. The Institute’s research and training agenda spans the continuum from basic, laboratory research to community-based treatment effectiveness studies and policy analyses. Faculty members from multiple departments across the university comprise the Institute, enabling a multidisciplinary approach to addressing the complex problems associated with alcohol, and other drugs.

The institute is led by F. Gerard Moeller, M.D., a preeminent researcher with a focus on brain imaging in addiction medicine. Moeller’s addiction research has been funded since 1996 by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. His work is published in more than 110 peer-reviewed publications.

Dr. Moeller is also director of the Virginia Commonwealth University Center for Clinical and Translational Research and the university’s associate vice president for clinical research.
