At the Cofrin Logan Center, we seek to understand, prevent, and treat addiction and related disorders, promote health and improve quality of life, and reduce stigma. Our center brings together scientists, practitioners, policy makers, and students across diverse disciplines from the KU Lawrence campus, KU Medical Center, and community partners, with the purpose of supporting collaborative research and community-academic partnerships that leverage the expertise of center members and partners.
