Comprehensive Alcohol Research Centers (P60) and Specialized Alcohol Research Centers (P50) 

NIAAA has released its Funding Opportunity Announcements for their Center Programs for 2021:

P60: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-AA-20-002.html

P50: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/rfa-aa-20-001.html

 

NIAAA has established a nationwide program of Alcohol Research Centers. The Alcohol Research Centers Program complements and is interrelated with all other research support mechanisms and scientific activities that investigate the causes, diagnosis, treatment, control, prevention, and consequences of alcohol abuse and alcoholism.

The Alcohol Research Centers provide long-term support (typically 5 years) for interdisciplinary research that focuses on particular aspects of alcohol abuse, alcoholism, or other related problems. This program encourages outstanding scientists from many disciplines to provide a full range of expertise, approaches, and advanced technologies for developing knowledge in these areas. A primary goal of each NIAAA-funded Center is to become, through excellence in scientific research, a significant regional or national research resource. In addition, each Center affords research training opportunities for individuals from various disciplines and professions. Current Alcohol Research Centers are listed below.
