The latest findings from a range of Australian and international alcohol and illicit drug research, plus a practical workshop focused on consumer and stakeholder engagement in research with Aboriginal communities, are features of the 2021 National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) symposium.

Program highlights include a keynote presentation and panel discussion on minimum alcohol pricing, engaging consumers in research, understanding youth drinking trends, increasing use of nitrous oxide, treatment access for methamphetamine smokers, how the alcohol industry attempts to influence policy, First Nations-led policy development and school-based alcohol harm reduction.
