Part 2. Section 1. Funding Opportunity Description

Specific Research Interests of the FOA Sponsors
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
Drug addiction impacts health and well-being far beyond the direct deleterious effects of drug exposure. Acute and chronic drug use and their sequelae, including unhealthy lifestyles, are related to non-communicable diseases and disorders such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, hepatitis, malnutrition, lung disease and others. Importantly, drug abuse is still an important driver of HIV/AIDS infection in parts of the world. Drugs of abuse also contribute to injury and trauma both as causes and in long-term consequences. Some of these effects occur when drugs are used at high doses or after prolonged use; however, some may occur after just one use. Research on how various drugs of abuse affect different parts of the body is encouraged and more information can be found at:  where links will take you to more information on: Cardiovascular Effects,  Respiratory Effects, Gastrointestinal Effects, Musculoskeletal Effects, Kidney Damage, Liver Damage, Hormonal Effects, Cancer, Prenatal Effects, Other Health Effects and Mortality.

The National Institute on Aging (NIA)

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) encourages research on those aging with multi-morbidity, the frail elderly, trajectories of healthy aging, and health and long-term care systems that help prevent and delay onset of disease and dysfunction: Applicants seeking to use observational data for secondary analysis or cross-national comparative research can find a useful guide to NIA-funded resources at the Gateway to Global Aging Data:
