New Investigator Opportunity (K01): Understanding Drug Use and Overdose Risk and Protective Factors

Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-CE-24-011

Letter of Intent: November 1, 2023
Application: December 1, 2023


The purpose of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide support for an intensive, supervised/mentored career development experience in substance use and/or overdose prevention research leading to research independence. NCIPC supports K01 grants to help ensure the availability of an adequate number of trained scientists to address critical public health research questions to prevent polydrug use and overdose. This funding would support research that aims to better understand and identify risk and protective factors related to any drug use/overdose (e.g., opioids including fentanyl and stimulants, etc.), substance use disorders (SUDs), and stigma (e.g., how do certain factors impact stigma). Research can focus on the examination of potential moderators or mediators between the relationship between risk and protective factors and drug use and outcomes.
