Current and former DIBS Faculty Steering Committee members Warren Grill, PhD, Biomedical Engineering, and Fan Wang, PhD, Neurobiology, respectively, are among Duke faculty leading projects funded by a $24 million grant from the National Institutes of Health. The funding comes from NIH's Helping to End Addiction Long-term Initiative (NIH HEAL), and seeks to apply scientific solutions to improve treatments for chronic pain, curb the rates of opioid use disorder and overdose, and achieve long-term recovery for opioid addiction.
