The National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (UG1 Clinical Trial Required)
This FOA invites applications from clinical investigators to participate in the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) and contribute to the network's capacity to respond to urgent public health needs.

Planning Grant for Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program (D71 - Clinical Trials Not Allowed)
This FOA encourages applications for a planning grant from institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to 1) Design a Global Infectious Disease (GID) Research Training Program in collaboration with U.S. collaborators and 2) Strengthen LMIC faculty and prepare advanced courses and training resources for the program envisioned at the LMIC institution.

The CDUHR 2020 Pilot Project Request for Applications has been announced. We are seeking pilot project applications focused on proposing high-impact and innovative research in the fields of HIV, HCV, substance use, and the continuum of prevention and care in these topical areas. The Pilot Projects Award provides the opportunity for investigators to develop new research initiatives or test the feasibility of new research strategies with the long-goal of securing subsequent external funding. Find more information on the CDUHR website HERE. Also see the announcement for the Information Session above.


Do you have an ORCID iD (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifiers)? If not, now may be a good time to get one. Starting October 1, 2019, ORCID identifiers will be required for individuals supported by institutional research training, career development, and other research education awards. xTrain appointments will not be accepted for agency review if potential appointees do not have an ORCID iD linked to their eRA personal profile. ORCID iDs will also be required for PD/PIs on individual fellowship and career development applications submitted for due dates on or after January 25, 2020. Find more information about this on the recent NIH Notice HERE.
