Mechanisms of Behavior Change in the Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorders (R01, R03, R21)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages grant applications from institutions or organizations that propose to investigate the underlying mechanisms that facilitate behavior change within our current empirically-supported behavioral treatments for alcohol use disorders.  A further goal of this FOA is to enhance translational research efforts by identifying potential neurobiological or cognitive processes that may act as potential mechanisms of therapeutic change or mediate the direct link between specific “active ingredients” and alcohol use treatment outcomes.

Although this funding opportunity uses the R01 grant mechanism, it runs in parallel with two program announcements of identical scientific scope: PAR-14-052, for R03 Small Grants, and PAR-14-053, which uses the exploratory/developmental (R21) grant mechanism.
