Deadline: 7 September 2019
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is seeking applications from eligible organisations for a program entitled “Target Assessment, Engagement and Data Replicability to Improve Substance Use Disorders Treatment Outcomes” with an aim to provide support for applications that focus on data replication and the scalability of novel, targeted addiction treatments.
- Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
- The maximum project period is 3 years.
- Applicants are strongly encouraged to propose projects related to multiple substances, which may include poly-substance use or abuse. Consistent with the overall goals of the CRAN initiative, such projects will receive programmatic priority over projects focused on a single substance.
- Applications lacking a focus on an experimental therapeutic approach will not be considered a priority for funding.
- While the testing of targeted treatments may be done in randomized clinical trials, other methodologies may be used as appropriate (e.g., adaptive designs, multiphase optimization strategies).
- Studies comparing a novel intervention to other treatment or control conditions in the absence of an experimental approach to target identification, validation, and engagement will not be considered a priority.
- Studies that do not identify a treatment target; studies that do not propose a compelling rationale for a treatment target will not be considered a priority.
