Limited Competition for the Continuation of the National Consortium on Alcohol and Neurodevelopment in Adolescence (NCANDA) Data Analysis Resource (U24)
Department of Health and Human Services
National Institutes of Health
The primary objective of NCANDA is to address the following research questions: 1) what are the effects of both long and shorter-term adolescent alcohol exposure on the developing human brain; 2) what is the effect of timing, dose, and duration of alcohol exposure on brain development; 3) to what extent do these effects resolve or persist; 4) understand how key covariates factor into alcohol’s effects on the brain; and 5) potentially identify early neural, cognitive, and affective markers that may predict alcohol abuse and dependence and onset or worsening of mental illness during adolescence and into adulthood.
The organization of the NCANDA consortium consists of an overall Administrative Resource, a central Data Analysis Resource, and research project sites:
The NCANDA Administrative Resource (RFA-AA-17-004) coordinates the activities of the nation-wide consortium and is responsible for the development, tracking, and reporting of performance metrics from the research project sites and for the overall consortium.
The NCANDA Data Analysis Resource (this FOA) has responsibility for the standardization, storage, and analysis of the data acquired by the research project sites of the consortium.
The NCANDA Research Project Sites (RFA-AA-17-003) have responsibility for the acquisition of data according to the standard protocol for the nation-wide consortium and for the development of special research projects related to their expertise and interests that complement and support the overall objectives of the consortium.
