RFAs for Tobacco Control “Regulatory Science”

Filed under: NIH, Tobacco/Nicotine — Tags: , — mtaffe @ 10:33 am

One of the more interesting symposia at the recent CPDD meeting focused on a new drive by the FDA and NIH to respond to the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.

In short, the FDA is seeking to generate scientific information to guide and justify any steps they take to regulate tobacco products in the future. The money is apparently coming from taxes on said products so this will not involve any new appropriates to the NIH…from what I understood the NIH will simply be administering the research process.

There are now a flurry of RFAs:

are the standard R-mechanism ones.

For the R01s, due dates are January 15, 2014; June 17, 2014, January 16, 2015 and they anticipate devoting $11 Million to 20 awards.

It gets even better since they’ve thrown up some RFAs for K mechanisms

including the K99/R00. Serious stuff.
