NIDA’s Women and Sex/Gender Differences Junior Investigator Travel Award Program
at the 2016 College on Problems of Drug Dependence meeting
Considerable research, both human and animal, finds that the antecedents, consequences and mechanisms of drug abuse and dependence often differ between males and female and that sex/gender often plays a role in treatment and prevention outcomes. To help promote comparisons of outcomes in males and females and to promote female-specific research, NIDA plans to provide $1000 travel awards to 20 junior investigators who present their research on women or sex/gender analyses in any area of drug abuse at the annual CPDD meeting in Palm Springs, California, June 11-16.
· Graduate and medical students, post-doctoral students, medical residents, and investigators who are no more
than five years past the doctoral degree or residency are eligible.
· Applicant MUST be first author on the CPDD abstract or an oral symposium presentation.
· Minority investigators and male investigators are especially encouraged to apply.
· Priority may be given to those who have not previously received this award or held an R01.
