Since its inception in 2001, the National Hispanic Science Network (NHSN), in partnership with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), has worked tirelessly to make significant advances in the field of drug abuse research.

Through the incredible commitment and vision of the National Steering Committee, the NHSN has grown from 50 members in 2001 to a current membership base of over 400. Each year, the annual conference has increased in excellence, introducing cutting edge topics, while building necessary networking and mentoring opportunities for our members. International research collaborations have also developed, and the NHSN continues to work closely with the NIDA International Office to introduce international members to the Network.
