National Institute on Drug Abuse

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is interested in

expanding the number of qualified researchers, especially clinicians,

engaged in biomedical and behavioral drug abuse and addiction

research.  To this end, NIDA has set aside an additional $1.7 million

for mentored career awards (K20, K21) in Fiscal Year 1995.  These

programs give promising, new investigators the opportunity to work

with established researchers for a period of up to five years.  Due

to NIDA's particular interest in attracting clinically trained

individuals to the field of drug abuse and addiction research, most

of the funding for this cycle will be awarded to the Scientist

Development Award for Clinicians (K20).

To enhance the number of applications that will be considered during

this fiscal year, all K20 and K21 (AIDS and non-AIDS) applications

received by the February 1, 1995 deadline will be reviewed through an

expedited initial review process.  Both the set-aside funds and the

expedited review apply only to the K20 and K21 applications.  In

order to facilitate the expedited initial review of these

applications, in addition to sending the original and four copies to

the Division of Research Grants, a copy of each application must be

sent directly to:

Both AIDS and non-AIDS K20 and K21 applications will be reviewed in

order to permit the selection of applications for funding by the

National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse in May and allow for funding

by May 31, 1994.
