Recent awards through the NIDA International Program Announcements (PA) on International Research Collaboration on Drug Abuse and Addiction Research will support four research teams investigating drug-related HIV:
The Johns Hopkins-Fogarty African Bioethics Training Program (FABTP) seeks applications from eligible African institutions for a funded collaborative partnership in international research ethics. The goal of the training partnership is to enhance research ethics capacity within the selected African institution. Applicant institutions must meet institutional eligibility requirements. The training partnership will occur over a 12-month period beginning October 2011, with opportunities for continued collaboration thereafter.
Last year, NIDA funded four new projects through its Program Announcements (PA) for International Collaboration on Drug Abuse and Addiction Research. The PAs solicit applications involving research partnerships between NIDA grantees at U.S. institutions and their partners in other countries. Three R01 Research Grant Proposals and one R21 Exploratory/Development Research Grant were funded:
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:
