Building Translational Research in Integrative Behavioral Science (R21)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to encourage the development of translational research partnerships between scientists who study basic behavioral processes and those who study the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental and behavioral disorders (including alcohol and drug use disorders) and the delivery of services to those suffering from those disorders. NIMH, NIDA, and NIAAA are issuing this FOA as part of a major, long-term commitment to (a) encourage the systematic translation of basic behavioral theory, methods, and findings into research designed to reduce the burden of mental illness and behavioral disorders, and (b) encourage basic behavioral scientists to seek a further understanding of behavioral processes through an exploration of how those processes are altered by mental and behavioral alcohol and drug use disorders.
