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 1994.  These

programs give promising, new investigators the opportunity to work

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

To enhance the number of applications that will be considered during

this fiscal year, all non-AIDS K20 and K21 application received by

the June 1, 1994 deadline and assigned to the NIDA will be reviewed

through an expedited initial review process.  AIDS K20 and K21

applications received by the May 1, 1994 deadline will be reviewed on

their normal schedule.  In order to facilitate the expedited initial

review of these non-AIDS applications, in addition to the copies sent

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

be sent directly to:

Ms. Eleanor Friedenberg

Office of External Program Review

National Institute on Drug Abuse

5600 Fisher's Lane, Room 10-42

Rockville, MD  20857

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 September and funding of

applications by September 30, 1994.
