Proposals for project on addiction
Neurobiology of Addiction Research Center is accepting pilot
project proposals on addiction issues.
A pilot project core is part of the National Institutes of Health

The NARC Pilot Core will oversee the execution and development of basic
science, translational and clinical pilot projects that will bring new
technologies and new investigators into the field of addiction
The goals of the pilot core are to provide a mechanism primarily to
attract young faculty, and secondarily to recruit senior investigators,

will augment ongoing NARC investigations of the long-term
neuro-adaptations produced by cocaine self-administration.
The NARC has approximately $100,000 available annually to fund pilot
projects related to addiction issues.
