The mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) partnership, Collaborative Research on Addiction at NIH (CRAN), is to provide a strong collaborative framework to enable the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to integrate resources and expertise to advance substance use, abuse, and addiction research and public health outcomes.

ABCD Study

Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study

The NIH is exploring optimal ways to configure a large longitudinal cohort study to prospectively examine the effects of substance use on the human brain during early adolescence into young adulthood.


Funding Opportunities

CRAN solicits extramural grant applications through a variety of funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) to promote research in cross-cutting areas of substance use, abuse, addiction, and their related health consequences. There are currently no active CRAN-sponsored FOAs. To learn more about previous funding announcements or to be notified of new FOAs, go to CRAN-Sponsored Funding Opportunities.

In addition, the CRAN ICs offer other funding opportunities related to the science and health outcomes of substance use, abuse, and addiction. Links to these can be found at Related Funding Opportunities.
