NIH and VA Announce $7 Million Partnership for Substance Abuse Research among Military Personnel, Veterans and their Families: Research Will Focus on War Efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan

Two federal departments have joined forces to create a first-time collaborative funding project to support research on substance abuse and associated problems among U.S. military personnel, veterans and their families. The National Institute on Drug Abuse, in partnership with two other NIH Institutes — the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and the National Cancer Institute  — are jointly collaborating with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), on a seven million dollar funding opportunity announcement for research in this area. The funding opportunity announcement will focus on the causes, screening and identification, prevention and treatment of substance use and abuse — including alcohol, tobacco and other drugs — and associated problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder.
