The tragedy of the opioid crisis reflects a complex array of psychologic, biologic and social factors and we all recognize that addressing this crisis will require a multi-pronged approach. FAER has avoided targeting grants to certain topics, such as the opioid crisis. This is not to say that societal and clinical relevance of research is not valued by FAER, but our goal is to fund the best young investigators in the best environments studying all kinds of important topics. Having said that, I grabbed a dozen individuals from ten different institutions funded by FAER in the last eight years who are addressing some of the key factors in this crisis and whose work could move us forward in its resolution.
