Title: International Research Collaboration on Drug Abuse and Addiction Research - AIDS (R01) (PA-15-142)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: 08/17/2015

Amount: Unspecified

 

Description: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages collaborative research applications on drug abuse and addiction that take advantage of special opportunities that exist outside the United States. Special opportunities include access to unusual talent, resources, populations, or environmental conditions in other countries that will speed scientific discovery. Projects should have relevance to the mission of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and where feasible should address NIDA's international scientific priority areas. While the priorities will change from year to year, in FY15 priority areas include: linkages between HIV/AIDS and drug abuse; prevention, initiation, and treatment of nicotine and tobacco use (especially among vulnerable populations such as children, adolescents, pregnant women, and those with co-morbid disorders); the neuroscience of marijuana and cannabinoids; and the effect of changes in laws and policies on marijuana and its impact. The R01 funding mechanism supports a discrete, specified, circumscribed project to be performed by the named investigator(s) in an area representing his or her specific interest and competencies.

 

How to Apply: Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return the Proposal Review Form by August 17.
