NIDA Limited Competition Funding Opportunity Announcement
April 25, 2019
NIDA has made a new limited competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). The purpose of this FOA (RFA-DA-20-005) is to support the maintenance and expansion of existing NIDA-funded cohorts to continue addressing new emerging and/or high priority research on multidisciplinary aspects of HIV/AIDS and substance abuse in alignment with NIH-HIV research priorities.
From the FOA:
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) supports several HIV/AIDS cohorts involving people with substance use disorders (SUDs). These longitudinal cohorts serve as a resource platform for facilitating collaborations among investigators attempting to address emerging questions related to HIV infection, prevention, and treatment in the context of substance use and SUDs, and foster creativity and efficiency in investigator-initiated research. The purpose of this limited competition FOA is to continue supporting basic, epidemiologic, and clinical research on HIV/AIDS and HIV-associated co-morbidities and co-infections among populations with substance use and SUDs. This FOA ensures that the cohort studies continue to provide further insights into the changing demographics of the HIV epidemic as it relates to the current opioid crisis.
