Cooperative Drug Development Group (Cddg) for the Treatment of Serious Mental Illness: The intent of this solicitation is to invite applications from academic and pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry investigators interested in participating with the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in a Cooperative Drug Development Group (CDDG) program. The goal of the CDDG is to support proof-of- concept studies of novel mechanism drug candidates and promising investigational new drugs (IND) for the treatment of serious mental disorders. The CDDG will specifically focus on testing drugs directed at novel targets for mood disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, fragile x, autism, and other serious mental disorders. The CDDG will support studies to rapidly assess safety and tolerability in normal human subjects and preliminary efficacy studies in the target patient population. The proof-of-concept, early phase II or other studies such as clinical dose optimization, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics studies, should determine with reasonable certainty whether or not a drug candidate is sufficiently safe and effective to warrant further clinical and commercial development. These data will be essential for fostering partnerships between academic investigators and the private sector (small businesses, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology companies) to further test the drug candidate in future larger-scale, longer-term studies in the target population. The goal of the CDDG is to foster these long-term partnerships between NIMH, academia, and industry that will advance the development and testing of fundamentally new, rationally designed medications and treatments for serious mental disorders. Academic and/or pharmaceutical industry components of each CDDG should contribute unique scientific expertise towards the common goal of translating basic science findings into innovative pharmacological treatments for serious mental disorders. Each partnership or group must consist of a multi-disciplinary team of scientists with appropriate expertise to address the development and evaluation of novel IND- ready compounds for testing in humans. Scientists from both academia and pharmaceutical industry are encouraged to participate within a CDDG. Scientists from foreign institutions and NIH Intramural laboratories may participate in some aspects, as noted in other sections of this application. The CDDG is most appropriate for applications that include collaborations, Research Projects or core components from academia and the private sector (e.g., pharmaceutical, chemical, or biotechnological companies). It is anticipated that the interaction of academic and non-profit research institutions with industry and NIMH via the CDDG model will: 1) accelerate the development of new therapeutics for mood disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, fragile x, autism, and other serious mental disorders; 2) increase the availability of new IND-ready compounds suitable for testing in humans; and 3) facilitate the development and validation of new clinical measures or biomarkers suitable for use in human proof-of-concept trials of novel therapeutics for mood disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, fragile x, autism, and other serious mental disorders. Small businesses without academic and/or industry partners are encouraged to respond to related Program Announcements: Pharmacologic Agents and Drugs for Mental Disorders (SBIR Award) [http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-02- 027.html] and Development of PET and SPECT Ligands for Brain Imaging (SBIR Award) [http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-02-028.html].
