VCAR, which opened earlier this year, coordinates the research activities of faculty members from Vanderbilt University’s School of Medicine and College of Arts and Science who are working to better understand and ultimately improve addiction treatment. The center’s first annual science day featured presentations of current research, a poster session and a discussion of the role of medications in treating opioid addiction by Stephen Loyd, M.D., of the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
