Purpose. This FOA invites applications focused on research education for the development and testing of new statistical models to address genetics-based research problems in addiction. Applicants are expected to propose a well-integrated research education and training program in statistical models or computational methods in genetics for undergraduate, graduate, and/or postdoctoral level students. Since this is a novel program, participants may be supported for as long as five years, however shorter durations of funding of some individual participants are encouraged. Achieving the capacity of the institution to address the identified research area(s) is an additional goal of this award. During this award, institutions will be expected to implement strategies for enhancing research infrastructure and capacity building at their institution and in collaborative activities.
