“Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS): new frontiers in addiction?” is a MNS-supported international scientific school, which will be held at Sardegna Ricerche, Pula (CA), Sardinia, Italy, from the 10th to the 13th October 2017. NPS constitute a mayor societal challenge.
The advent of NPS has contributed to the appearance and growth of a new ‘drug scenario’ characterized by an increased number of drug users among youth and the consumption of drugs with unknown effects or safety profiles. This International Scientific School provides a unique opportunity for graduate students, PhD students, and post-doctoral scientists in the early stages of their career to gain expertise in the field of NPS.
This project has been funded by Sardegna Ricerche, in order to promote the study, monitoring and profiling of NPS and, along with the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), prevent health damage and update relevant professionals. MNS has allocated two travel stipends to students to attend this event.
