Directors Depart from NIMH, NIDA and NIAAA

Dr. Steven Hyman
Several leadership changes will result in new directors for three NIH institutes: the National Institute of Mental Health, whose director is decamping for Harvard; the National Institute on Drug Abuse, whose director has accepted the top job at the American Association for the Advancement of Science; and the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, whose director is retiring as the only one who ever led NIAAA.
