Limited Submission Announcement

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (U10) invites new cooperative agreement applications and cooperative agreement renewal applications from established clinical investigators to participate in the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN). As a nation-wide partnership for translational research among addiction treatment providers, researchers, and NIDA staff, the CTN's mission is to test and validate effective and efficient treatments that can be adopted by addiction treatment providers throughout the nation, using science as the vehicle. The CTN provides an enterprise in which community-based addiction service providers, other health practitioners working with patients that have addiction problems, addiction treatment researchers, and NIDA cooperatively develop, validate, refine, and deliver new treatment options for patients in community-level clinical practice.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 14, 2009. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarize 1) the proposed CTN research node’s unique and specialized expertise, capabilities, and resources; 2) plans for organizational and communications structures encompassing the node's Community Treatment Programs (CTPs); 3) plans for executing dissemination and implementation procedures for treatment; 4) a list of CTPs proposed as collaborators; and 5) a brief description of the proposed research agenda.


Up to $750,000 direct costs per year for the five-year project period. NIDA may consider budget requests of up to $875,000 direct costs per year for applications that propose multiple PIs from one or more institutions.
