NIDA has committed $2 million in fiscal year (FY) 2014 to fund two to three awards for scientists who propose cutting-edge—and possibly transformative—approaches to major challenges in biomedical and behavioral research on HIV/AIDS that are relevant to drug abuse. Applications are due November 6, 2013. For more information, see RFA-DA-14-008
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) intends to commit $4 million to fund 8 to 10 awards in fiscal year 2012 to support implementation science projects that will inform the President’s Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) as it develops more efficient and cost-effective methods to deliver HIV prevention, treatment, and care for drug-using populations.
NIDA supports research on the biomedical and behavioral causes, consequences, prevention, and treatment of drug abuse and addiction. Learn how research is supported by reading the Introduction to Funding.
Although some international researchers receive NIDA support through a direct foreign grant, most international research is supported through a domestic grant with a foreign component, where a principal investigator from a U.S. institution works with a researcher from another country.
As part of its effort to encourage rigorous collaborative international research, the NIDA International Program has issued three Program Announcements soliciting proposals for International Research Collaboration on Drug Abuse and Addiction Research to support projects that:
Application Deadlines: May 29, 2013
NIDA has agreed to commit up to $3.5 million in fiscal year 2013 funds to support approximately six R01 awards and $500,000 to support approximately two to three R21 awards.
NIDA is seeking applications for high-risk/high-impact innovative research relevant to NIDA research priorities in (1) basic and clinical neuroscience; (2) drug discovery for medications development; or (3) genetics research involving genetic model systems or human genetics.
The Fogarty International Center (FIC) recently announced two new programs of interest to the drug abuse and addiction research community. FIC’s programs provide funding to perform research and to train researchers in a variety of global health topics. The new programs offer funding to enhance research capacity and to mentor and train early-career health scientists in global health topics.
