Alcohol Research Resource Awards (R24)
Grant
http://www07.grants.gov/search/search.do?&mode=VIEW&oppId=183513
Current Closing Date for Applications: Sep 07, 2015
In the pursuit of alcohol-related research, resources are occasionally developed that are used by and
benefit the broader alcohol research community and are shared with scientists at both the resource
developer's home institution and at external institutions. While support for maintenance of these
resources is often provided through a Regular Research Project Grant (R01) award or the core of an
Alcohol Research Center (P50), situations may arise in which continued support of the resource through
any or all of these instruments is not feasible. For example, demand for the resource by individuals from
outside the home institution may exceed the capacity of support available through an investigator's R01
or an institution's P50. As well, the developers of the resource may have a reduced need for the resource,
while other investigators continue to benefit from the resource.
