The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) announces the availability of funds to supplement existing NIDA-supported research projects to expand current research efforts, within the scope of the original grant, to conduct a research collaboration as part of a U.S. – Netherlands binational collaboration. This program was initiated in 1999 through an Exchange of Letters by NIDA and The Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Development (ZonMw and NWO). Funds will be provided through administrative supplements to take advantage of unique opportunities to support drug abuse research with emphasis in the following areas: 1) the effect of exposure to marijuana on the developing brain; 2) prevention and treatment strategies related to marijuana use in children and adolescents; 3) prevention strategies/interventions for other abused drugs with emphasis on adolescents and young adulthood. NIDA and ZonMw will collaboratively fund the awards. Only existing R01 and R21 grants supported by NIDA with at least one year of support remaining at the time of the supplemental award are eligible for supplemental support under this notice. Supplements may be requested for up to 2 years of support, but extend no longer than the parent grant, with funding beginning no later than September 30, 2005. It is anticipated that up to 3 projects will be funded under this initiative. For more information, refer to http://www.drugabuse.gov/funding/binationalsupplement.html.
