Preventing Harmful Drug Use In Australia


The National Drug Research Institute is one of the largest centres of drug research expertise in Australia. The Institute currently employs around twenty research staff and has a number of postgraduate research students.

Recognising that problems associated with drug use are complex in their origins, a multi-disciplinary approach to research is pursued. This is reflected in the experience of the Institute's staff, who are drawn from a range of disciplines including psychology, epidemiology, public health, sociology and anthropology.

In addition, there are seven business support services staff, including a Business Manager, Computer Systems Officer, Media Liaison Officer and a Library Resource Officer.
