Description: Purpose. This FOA is to provide support for research Centers that conduct drug abuse and addiction research in any area of NIDAs mission, that have outstanding innovative science, that are multidisciplinary, thematically integrated, synergistic, and that serve as national resource(s) to provide educational and outreach activities to drug abuse research communities, educational organizations, the general public, and policy makers in the NIDA research fields. It is expected that a Center will transform knowledge in the sciences it is studying. Incremental work should not be the focus of Center activities; rather, new and creative directions are required. The P50 Center of Excellence is expected to support the education, training, and mentoring of new investigators who would be given meaningful roles to play in the Center projects. NIDA Centers are expected to share their findings, their data and their resources, and to serve as national research resources in the drug abuse research field. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the Research Center of Excellence Grant (P50) mechanism. There should be evidence that the presence of a Center structure is essential for the accomplishment of the research activities. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards.
