[#DIV28SUPER] NIDA Reorganization to Integrate Its Research Portfolio, Promote Translational Research, and Increase Efficiencies

Dear Colleagues and Investigators:


As many of you already know, over the past few months, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has been working on a reorganization (http://www.drugabuse.gov/news-events/news-releases/2015/10/translational-research-focus-nida-organizational-shift of its Divisional Structure to integrate its basic and clinical research portfolio, promote translational research, and increase efficiencies. The new  structure (http://www.drugabuse.gov/about-nida/organization)   which will go into effect on October 1, 2015, will eliminate the Division of Clinical Neuroscience and Behavior (DCNBR), and incorporate its scientific portfolio on clinical neuroscience, brain development, and behavioral treatment development into existing and newly formed components of other NIDA divisions.  As part of this process, staff will also be moving to different divisions within NIDA, and there is a possibility that your assigned Program Officer and Grants Management (GM) specialist will be changed.  These modifications will be updated in the electronic Research Administration (eRA) Commons system, and we expect to have them completed by November 15, 2015.   We ask that you please log in to your eRA Commons (https://public.era.nih.gov/commons/public/login.do) account at that time, and confirm your NIH program official and GM specialist. 


Should you desire additional information or have any immediate questions, please feel free to contact your current Program Officer.

NIDA is excited about the new scientific opportunities that this reorganization will bring.  With your continued support, we will continue to advance the science of drug abuse and addiction as well as promote translational research across the Institute.
