Collaborative Drug Abuse and HIV/AIDS Research: Establishing Regional U.S.-Eurasian Networks

The US Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF; www.crdf.org), a nonprofit organization that promotes international scientific and technical collaboration through grants, technical resources, and training), with generous funding by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will host a 2*-day proposal development workshop in Kiev, Ukraine, from April 17-19, 2008. The workshop is tentatively titled Collaborative Drug Abuse and HIV/AIDS Research: Establishing Regional U.S.-Eurasian Networks. Following the Kiev meeting to initiate collaborative proposals, CRDF will award two grants to successful applicants in early Fall 2008.

The goal of this workshop will be to identify research agendas and develop regional proposals for innovative projects in one or more areas of drug abuse and HIV/AIDS research. Through the proposal development workshop and the follow-on research grants, CRDF plans to support collaboration between US and Eurasian scientists related to drug abuse and HIV infection in the fields of biology, biomedicine, and behavioral sciences.

CRDF will accept joint U.S.-Eurasian proposals - both from teams that participate in the proposal development workshop and others beyond the workshop which promise innovative research related to drug abuse and HIV/AIDS. Each proposal should have one (1) U.S. Principal Investigator, and at least one (1) Eurasian Principal Investigator. At least 80 percent of these funds must be directed towards Eurasian team expenses, and no more than 20 percent may be directed to the U.S. team's expenses.
