Three institutes under the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have teamed up to establish the Collaborative Research on Addiction at NIH (CRAN) initiative, under which promotion of research into cross-cutting areas of addiction and related health consequences will take place.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) Tobacco Control Research Branch are involved in the partnership to integrate resources and expertise. A new website “will allow interested researchers, clinicians, and the public to follow the collaboration’s initiatives,” according to an announcement last week from NIDA.
The website made its debut on Dec. 12. There are no active CRAN-sponsored funding opportunity announcements at present.
