The National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre is hosting a series of free seminars on a wide range of topics surrounding research on alcohol and other drugs.

The weekly seminars are held on Thursdays at 3pm, and presenters include NDARC staff as well as national and international guests of the Centre.   

NDARC kicks off the 2016 series on 4 February with a presentation by Professor Alex Stevens from the University of Kent, United Kingdom, who is currently working at NDARC as a Visiting Fellow at the Drug Policy Modelling Program.

In his presentation, Professor Stevens will talk about social control, public health and the current state of English drug policy.

In March, NDARC staff and interested guests will hear from Kieran Palmer, Clinical Services Manager at the Ted Noffs Institute about programs and initiatives at the Ted Noffs Foundation.

Later in the month, Professor Joanne Neale from the Addictions Department at Kings College London will present on the development of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) in addiction science.

More speakerswill be confirmed in the coming months.  For updates and more information visit https://ndarc.med.unsw.edu.au/news-events.
