The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) announcement is to support the development and maintenance of a Resource Center for Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research through a cooperative agreement funding mechanism (U24).
Such a Center will address challenges and barriers to conducting
research on cannabis and its constituents as well as to enable researchers to successfully generate more rigorous scientific evidence across a variety of research domains in both basic and clinical research.
The Center is expected to be a focal point for researchers entering the cannabis research space and to support the development and establishment of research tools and studies that will improve upon and eventually change the landscape of cannabis research.
Overall, the Center will facilitate research advances through synergistic interactions among experts in relevant commercial, basic science, clinical, and regulatory areas both within the Center itself and in collaboration with the extramural community.
