This roundtable brings together NIDA leadership and prevention program officers to discuss strategic priorities for prevention research at NIDA and share new opportunities of relevance for the prevention research field. Examples of topics to be discussed include: integrating neurobiological and behavioral research for developing and testing novel prevention interventions; furthering research on mechanisms, including targeting underlying mechanisms of risk and understanding mechanisms of action for prevention interventions; advancing implementation research to increase the adoption and sustainability of evidence-based prevention, at scale, in real world systems and settings; stimulating effective strategies to prevent prescription drug abuse while ensuring quality medical care and promoting safe treatment of pain; and addressing HIV/AIDS research priorities. Cross-cutting themes of health equity, technology integration, transdisciplinary and collaborative science, and data sharing will be addressed. The prevention science community will be an integral part of this discussion and focus on moving from goals and priorities, to action, in order to increase the impact of drug abuse prevention science.
