In order to improve functional integration of germane Institutional NRSA Research Training at NIAAA and NIDA, a single Special Emphasis Panel will be set up each year to review applications received by the two ICs in response to the parent Funding Opportunity Announcements: PAR-14-015 (T32) and PA-14-016 (T35).  The panels will be jointly managed by staff from NIAAA and NIDA who will ensure that appropriate expertise is included to review the full breadth of research training proposed in all of the applications, including those applicable to each institute as well as those responsive to multi-substance priority areas.  The first set of applications to be reviewed in this manner will be those submitted for the May 25, 2016 (non-AIDS) and September 7, 2016 (AIDS) application due dates for January 2017 Council.
