NIH Collaborative Research on Addiction at NIH: NIH funds a large portfolio of grants on the science and health outcomes of substance use, abuse, and addiction. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is part of a trans-NIH initiative Collaborative Research on Addiction at NIH. The goal of this FOA is to inspire and support short-term (up to three years) research projects investigating the role of social media in risk behaviors associated with the use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (hereafter referred to as "ATOD") and projects using social media to ameliorate such behaviors. Each research project proposed in response to this FOA must be focused on one of the two distinct areas:  1) observational research using social media interactions as surveillance tools to aid in the understanding of the epidemiology, risk factors, attitudes, and behaviors associated with ATOD use and addiction, or 2) intervention research measuring the reach, engagement, and behavioral and health impact of social media-based interventions for the screening, prevention, and treatment, of ATOD use and addiction. There are two different opportunities available: 

-R21 Exploratory/Developmental Grant
-R01 Research Project Grant
