Description:The purpose of this Notice is to alert the community that NIH plans to publish a set of Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) as part of the Helping to End Addiction Long-termSM (HEAL) Initiative to support research project sites, a Data Coordinating Center, and a Consortium Administrative Core for the HEALthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) Study. This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to form meaningful collaborations and develop responsive applications. The primary objective of the HBCD Project is to conduct a large scale multi-site longitudinal study that can prospectively examine human brain, cognitive, behavioral, social, and emotional development beginning at birth and extending through middle childhood. The study will comprise a normative sample that represents the diversity of pregnant women in the US population, a cohort of women who have used opioids and other substances during pregnancy will also be recruited, and a comparison group from similar backgrounds/environments as the cohort of women who have used substances. The study is intended to create a well-characterized cohort of children in order to examine the developmental impact of pre/postnatal drug exposure and multiple other genetic and environmental factors that affect risk or resilience in various health and mental health domains. Anonymized data from this cohort will be made available to the broader research community during the course of the study to maximize their utility. The FOAs are expected to be published in Fall 2020 with an expected application due date in WINTER 2021. These FOAs will utilize the cooperative agreement (U) activity codes. Details of the planned FOAs are provided below.
