This program announcement (PA) replaces PA-99-002, Epidemiologic Research on
Drug Abuse, published in the NIH Guide, October 2, 1998; PA-99-113, Drug
Use and Related Adverse Behavioral and Social Consequences, published in the
NIH Guide, June 18, 1999; and PAR 99-168, Research on the Origins and
Pathways to Drug Abuse. This new PA encourages a broad range of
epidemiologic research on drug use, abuse, and dependence. It highlights new
areas for research that emphasize the vital public health role of
epidemiologic research in drug abuse.

The major goal of this PA is to stimulate innovative investigations that
enhance our understanding of: (1) drug use patterns and trends within and
across populations; (2) interplay of social interactions, social environment,
structural context with individual behavioral characteristics and genetic
vulnerability; (3) the phenotypic heterogeneity of drug abuse; (4) causal
mechanisms leading to onset, maintenance, and remittance of drug abuse, as
well as protective mechanisms that reduce the risk of drug abuse; and (5)
drug abuse over the life course, including developmental processes that
influence drug use trajectories and behavioral, health, and social
consequences of drug abuse. In addition, research is encouraged to develop
methodologies to improve the accuracy, efficiency, scope, timeliness, and
analytic yield of drug abuse epidemiologic data. Because of the breadth of
epidemiology research, applications are anticipated to reflect diverse and
multidisciplinary putative approaches and multiple levels of causation. To
take advantage of the strength of specific research fields in an efficient
manner, and to maximize the generalizability of findings, researchers are
encouraged to develop and/or incorporate innovations in epidemiologic study
design. Such designs may include nesting of biological and/or basic
research, contextual analysis, and contemporary longitudinal analyses.
