This Notice announces the participation of the National Institute on Drug Abuse in PA-09-002, “Short Courses on Mathematical, Statistical, and Computational Tools for Studying Biological Systems (R25)” (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-09-002.html).  Through our participation, the NIDA plans to support applications that address short courses and workshops on topics relevant to NIDA (http://www.nida.nih.gov/about/organization/Organization.html). 
Special emphasis will be given to applications that foster the interaction of computational scientists, informaticians, statisticians, and ontological engineers directly with investigators in substance abuse research to advance understanding, application, and development of tools, knowledge environments, and analytical methods to the complex, integrative approaches needed to improve understanding of substance abuse across multiple biological scales based on data from a variety of experimental modalities.    Areas for short course and workshop development that are of particular interest to the NIDA may include, but are not limited to, the following:

All other aspects of this FOA remain unchanged.
