Collaborative R34s for Pilot Studies of Innovative Treatments in Mental Disorders
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), seeks to support collaborative preliminary intervention studies to evaluate the feasibility, tolerability, acceptability and safety of novel mechanism drug candidates, promising investigational new drugs (INDs), or novel psychosocial strategies for the treatment of mental disorders and for obtaining the preliminary data needed as a pre-requisite to larger-scale (efficacy or effectiveness) intervention or services studies. This FOA should be used when at least two but no more than three sites from different Institutions/Organizations are needed to complete the study. The collaborating studies should be organized in order to increase sample size, accelerate recruitment, and/or increase sample diversity and representation.
