Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions and organizations that propose to study the effects and functional consequences of cannabis and cannabinoid exposures on the developing brain, from pre-, peri-, post-natal development through young adulthood in animal models and humans. Topics of interest pertaining to this FOA include, but are not limited to: molecular and cellular mechanisms of cannabis/cannabinoid effects on the developing brain; long term functional consequences of cannabis/cannabinoid exposure on learning and memory, cognitive and emotional development.

Although this funding opportunity uses the R01 grant mechanism, it runs in parallel with two program announcements of identical scientific scope: PA-14-162, for exploratory/developmental (R21) grants, and  PA-14-164, for R03 small grants.
