Volkow and Bonci guided the congressman on a tour of the facility, which included viewing the cutting-edge clinical and basic research laboratories and tools being used to help further what is known about drug addiction. Sarbanes was led through the Archway Clinic, which conducts studies in human volunteers to better understand, treat and prevent drug abuse and dependence. To end the tour, Volkow and Bonci showcased NIDA’s brain imaging capabilities, where Sarbanes was able to see the manipulation of brain cells at the neuron level.
