NIDA Research "Center of Excellence" Grant Program (P50): This FOA is to provide support for research centers that conduct drug abuse and addiction research that have outstanding innovative science and that are multidisciplinary, thematically integrated, synergistic, and are/will be serving as national resource(s) for the NIDA research fields. This FOA uses 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. 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. 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. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. Research may occur in any area of NIDA's mission. Each separate project should bear an essential relationship to the integrating theme. The P50 Center of Excellence is expected to support the education, training, and mentoring, of new investigators, who should be given meaningful roles to play in the center projects. NIDA Centers are expected to share their findings, their data and their resources. Eligible organizations include for-profit and non-profit organizations, public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories, units of state and local governments, eligible agencies of the federal government, domestic institutions, and faith-based or community-based organizations.
