Featured Funding Opportunities and Grant Assistance:
The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) has recently announced the A Specialized Platform for Innovative Research Exploration (ASPIRE) Design Challenges for translational innovation in pain, opioid use disorder (OUD) and overdose. The goal of these challenges is to develop innovative and catalytic approaches towards solving the opioid crisis through development of (1) novel chemistries; (2) data-mining and analysis tools and technologies; and (3) biological assays that will revolutionize discovery, development and pre-clinical testing of next generation, safer and non-addictive analgesics to treat pain, as well as new treatments for opioid use disorder (OUD) and overdose. The NCATS ASPIRE Challenges are part of the of the NIH’s Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Initiative to speed scientific solutions to the national opioid public health crisis. The Challenge begins December 31, 2018 and proposals are due May 31, 2019.
