Biography

Howard B. Moss, M.D. is the former Associate Director for Clinical and Translational Research at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. He is a board-certified psychiatrist with added qualifications in the subspecialty of Addiction Psychiatry. For the past 20 years, Moss has been a key opinion leader in addiction psychiatry and in the evidence-based clinical management of individuals with substance use disorders complicated by psychiatric comorbidity. In this capacity, he has authored over 165 peer-reviewed scientific journal publications and three books. He has been Professor of Psychiatry at University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, and the University of Pittsburgh prior to assuming his role at N.I.H. His research has focused on the clinical manifestations of substance use disorders, their etiology, and the intergenerational transmission of risk and resilience. This work has employed diverse methodologies that include psychiatric epidemiology, advanced statistical methods, neurochemistry/neuropharmacology, psychophysiology, biomarker development, neuroimaging, and molecular and behavioral genetics. Moss has also maintained a private practice of addiction psychiatry where he has specialized in treating adolescent and young adults with problematic involvement with alcohol and drugs, with a special emphasis on abuse of prescription opiates.
