Amy C. Janes, PhD, director of the Functional Integration of Addiction Research Laboratory at the McLean Imaging Center, was elected president of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD).
An independent organization of more than 1,000 members, the CPDD works to advance scientific approaches to substance use and addictive disorders. The organization collaborates with government officials, businesses, academic institutions, and other groups on initiatives related to the prevention, research, treatment, and epidemiology of drug and alcohol misuse.
The director of the McLean Imaging Center, Scott E. Lukas, PhD, congratulated Janes on her new position. “This is an outstanding accomplishment,” Lukas said. “The college will surely benefit from her insight, experience, and leadership.”
Lukas called on members of the McLean community to extend their “hearty congratulations to Dr. Janes for this outstanding honor, as she will continue in the tradition of providing exceptional leadership toward the goal of preventing and treating drug and alcohol dependence.”
