Comprehensive Alcohol Research Centers (P60 Clinical Trial Optional)

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites applications for Comprehensive Alcohol Research Centers using the P60 mechanism which requires a dissemination core to initiate and expand community education related to the activities of the center. The overall purpose of the NIAAA Alcohol Research Center program is to provide leadership in conducting and fostering interdisciplinary, collaborative research on a wide variety of topics relevant to the Institute‚Äôs mission. These topics include, but are not limited to: the nature, etiology, genetics, epigenetics, diagnosis, epidemiology, treatment, and prevention of alcohol misuse, alcohol use disorder, alcohol-related end organ diseases and their biomedical, neurochemical, behavioral, psychosocial, and economic consequences across the lifespan and  impacting racial and ethnic minority groups and other NIH-designated populations that experience health disparities. Centers also are regional or national resources that contribute to the development of new research methods, technologies and approaches that sustain innovative goal-directed research.

This NOFO requires a Plan for Enhancing Diverse Perspectives (PEDP), which will be assessed as part of the scientific and technical peer review evaluation. Applications that fail to include a PEDP will be considered incomplete and will be withdrawn. Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the FOA instructions carefully and view the available PEDP guidance material.
