The DRNS aims to encourage research, practice and policy to improve our understanding of, and responses to, drug problems in Scotland.

We have created DRNS membership to exchange knowledge, and make links between people who would like to be informed about, and involved in, this work.

Membership is free and open to anyone with an interest in Scottish drugs research, especially people currently involved, or planning to get involved, in research.

We are particularly keen to support the development of people who are keen to develop their skills, profiles and careers including Masters and PhD students, Early Career and Peer Researchers.

Benefits of membership include early access to skills and knowledge sharing events and access to a members only section of the website (currently in development).  You will also receive the monthly eNewsletter with information on updates, job opportunities and up-coming events.
