The National Institute on Drug Abuse intends to reissue a Request for Applications (RFA) soliciting applications for the establishment of Developmental/Exploratory Centers for Translational Research on the Clinical Neurobiology of Drug Addiction. The RFA is expected to be published in October 2006. Specifically, for this RFA, the concept of a “translational research center on the neurobiology of drug abuse and addiction” is an entity with a primary clinical/human neurobiology focus in which preclinical research directly informs or provides a mechanistic foundation for the clinical neurobiological research. The primary aim of this RFA is to support early stage development of interdisciplinary teams of investigators dedicated to the integrated study of the impact of drug exposure, abuse, and addiction on the human brain and to position these teams to compete successfully for Centers for Translational Research on the Clinical Neurobiology of Drug Addiction that will be established in a future initiative. Successful applications will demonstrate a strategy for the establishment of an Exploratory or Developmental Center that will provide a structure for the support of the team's goals that must clearly integrate animal studies into the context of clinical neurobiological studies, a strong scientific rationale for both the composition of the team and the role of the team members, a demonstrated institutional commitment to the Center, and a clear exposition of a plan for the continuation of the program.
