-The NIAAA Alcohol Research Center program provides leadership in conducting and fostering interdisciplinary research on a wide variety of topics including, but not limited to: the nature, causes, consequences, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of alcohol abuse and alcoholism; and in developing new topics, approaches and methodologies to pursue these areas of research. -This RFA uses the NIH Comprehensive Research Center (P60) mechanism to support an integrated, broad-based multidisciplinary, multi-investigator, long-term program of research and research support activities planned around a specific major research theme and to develop an effective research translation / information dissemination component to help accelerate the use of research findings for the benefit of public health. Comprehensive Alcohol Research Centers are also expected: to function as a regional and National resource in their particular area of expertise; to facilitate research training; to develop research collaborations with outside investigators and to provide the means to develop new research ideas and encourage new investigators via pilot projects. -The total cost for a Center may not exceed $2.0 million per year under this P60 mechanism. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. Although the financial plans of the NIAAA provide support for this program, awards pursuant to this funding opportunity are contingent upon the availability of funds and the receipt of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Continuation support in future years is anticipated.
