- The goal of this program announcement is to encourage research on all aspects of inhalant abuse (i.e., epidemiology; prevention, treatment and service delivery; antecedents, consequences and neurobiological mechanisms).
- Inhalants are volatile substances that produce chemical vapors that can be inhaled to induce a psychoactive or mind-altering effect. Prevalence data indicate that inhalant abuse continues to be a major public health concern among grade school children, adolescents and some adults. Inhalants pose a particular hazard since they are readily accessible, legal and inexpensive. They often are abused by young children and can be highly toxic or lethal. The participating Institutes and Centers invite qualified researchers to submit research grant applications aimed at improving our understanding of inhalant abuse, particularly among pre-adolescent and adolescent populations.
- The total amount to be awarded depends on the scientific merit of applications and the funds available in NIDA's general funding pool.
- The types of mechanisms supported under this PA are the R01, R03 and R21. Eligible organizations include for-profit and not-for-profit, public or private organizations, units of state and local governments, eligible agencies of the Federal Government, domestic or foreign institutions/organizations, faith-based or community-based organizations and Native American tribal organizations. Eligible principal investigators include any individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research.
- There is no limit on the number of scientifically distinct applications that may be submitted.
