NIDA To Participate in Fogarty Center BRAIN Funding Opportunity

In late October, NIDA announced it would participate in the Fogarty International Center funding opportunity announcements "Global Brain and Nervous System Disorders Research Across the Lifespan (BRAIN)." NIDA will consider innovative, collaborative R01 or R21 grant applications submitted by researchers from the United States or upper middle-income countries and their partners in low- and middle-income countries. Binational teams may propose all types of research, from basic through implementation science (including clinical trials), as long as the focus is neurological, mental, behavioral, alcohol, or substance use disorders. Applications will be due November 7, 2019, and November 6, 2020.  More information is available at the Fogarty International Center Global Brain Disorders Research program website. More information about the funding opportunities is available in the NIH Guide:
