Center for Innovation and Discovery in Addictions

The Center for Innovation and Discovery in Addictions (CIDA), part of UMMC’s NeuroInstitute, is dedicated to understanding, discovering, implementing, and disseminating innovative treatments for people confronting substance use disorders.  

Our overarching goal is translational research and medicine—taking a new molecule, therapy, and/or program from the experimental stages to the clinic and ultimately to the community.

Co-Director's Welcome

Established in 2020, the Center for Innovation and Discovery in Addictions (CIDA, pronounced “see-dah”) is an ambitious and forward-thinking initiative designed to address essentially all aspects of addiction science and medicine. Our goal is to bring together basic and preclinical scientists, clinical scientists, health care providers, and experienced educators from across Mississippi to establish a true translational research organization in the addiction science space.
