The NIH International Tobacco and Health Research and Capacity Building Program (R01) solicits research and capacity-building projects that address the burden of tobacco consumption in low- and middle-income nations by (1) pursuing observational, intervention and policy research of local relevance; and (2) building capacity in regions in epidemiological and behavioral research, prevention, treatment, communications, health services and policy research. The level of research and research training specialization in any given research project grant will vary based on the strengths of the particular investigators and institutions that apply and the need to build capacity to support research and future interventions. The overall intent of the program is to encourage trans-disciplinary approaches to the international tobacco epidemic to reduce the global burden of tobacco-related illness. The program is designed to promote international cooperation between investigators in the US or other high-income nations pursuing research programs on tobacco control, and scientists and institutions in low- and middle-income nations where tobacco consumption is a current or anticipated public health urgency.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, June 23, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarize 1) the research projects anticipated to be part of the program, 2) any core resources expected to be included in the program, 3) any international partners, and 4) the scientific theme of the program.


An applicant may request a project period of up to five years and a budget for direct costs of up to $300,000 per year
