Deadline for Submission Extended to January 16, 2015

Accumulating research, both human and animal, finds that the antecedents, consequences and mechanisms of drug abuse and dependence often differ between males and females.  Such differences may affect responses to treatment and prevention.  To help promote comparisons of outcomes in males and females and to promote female-specific research, NIDA plans to provide $750 travel awards to 27 junior investigators who present their research on women or sex/gender analyses in any area of drug abuse at the annual meeting of the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) in Phoenix, AZ, June 13-18, 2015.

 Travel award recipients must be the first author on their accepted oral presentation or poster.  Eligible applicants include graduate and medical students, postdocs, medical residents and researchers who are no more than five years past earning their doctoral degree or finishing their residency.  NIDA encourages male and minority investigators to apply.

 Applications are now due by Friday January 16, 2015.  Full eligibility and submission requirements can be found by clicking here and by contacting Dr. Samia Noursi (; 301-594-5622) or Dr. Cora Lee Wetherington (; 301-435-1319).
