Call for Proposals: Medical Toxicology Foundation Research Award: Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention
The deadline for submissions is 11:59 pm ET on February 14, 2014.
The Medical Toxicology Foundation is accepting proposals for innovative research projects designed to mitigate the harm associated with prescription drug abuse.
Misuse and abuse of prescription opioids, stimulants, and sedative medications has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Overdose is now the leading cause of unintentional injury death, and most of these deaths are caused by prescription medications.
The MTF will support outstanding research and other initiatives that have the potential to reduce the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs, particularly among young people. A major goal is to support the development and/or analysis of innovative prevention, treatment, and/or harm reduction strategies.
The maximum amount of this award is $5,000 for direct costs. By policy, the MTF does not cover indirect costs. The maximum award period is two years.
The grant is open to any ACMT member in good standing. The PI or Senior Investigator must be an active ACMT member. Co-Investigators are not required to be ACMT members and collaboration with professionals from other disciplines is encouraged.
