Diversity-promoting Institutions Drug Abuse Research Program (DIDARP) (R24)

Program Contact: Pamela Goodlow
This grant program is designed to increase the drug abuse and addiction research capacity of institutions that serve economically disadvantaged students and provide services to economically disadvantaged communities.

Grants are provided to foster the research career development of a diverse cadre of students, faculty and staff in drug abuse research.  Each DIDARP program has a thematic research focus from which all research and training activities are planned.  Examples include the intersection of drug abuse/HIV/AIDS and criminal justice, neurobiology of addiction, effects of in-utero cocaine exposure, epidemiology of stress and its mediators,  prevention research and methamphetamine abuse in HIV. Health disparities research themes are encouraged.
