Due date for Letter of intent: 13 October 2015
Due date for Application: 20 November 2015
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are now accepting proposals for research on waterpipe tobacco products. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to encourage biomedical, behavioural and social science research that will inform the development and evaluation of possible regulatory action on waterpipe (or hookah) tobacco products.
Research projects must address the research priorities related to the regulatory authority of the FDA Center for Tobacco Products as mandated by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. Research results from this grant are expected to generate findings and data that are directly relevant to inform the FDA's regulation of the manufacture, distribution and marketing of waterpipes to protect public health.
Applicants are required to strictly adhere to the guidelines of this grant, and conform to all requirements.
