Updates to BLRD and CSRD RFAs

New for the Spring 2020 Cycle are CDA-1 opportunities supporting an early mentored research training program open to psychiatrists (CX-20-020 and BX-20-020) or military Veterans (BX-20-021 and CX-20-021) or applicants associated with Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) (BX-20-026 and CX-20-026).

There is also a new RFAs for a Collaborative Merit Award (BX-20-007 and CX-20-007) that allows any combination of BLRD and CSRD Merit awards to support translational activities.  Please note the BLRD Merit Award budget on the Collaborative Merit differs from the parent Merit (BX-20-001).

A new phased clinical trial award (CX-20-005) has been introduced.  The RFA allows for a combination of the proof of concept study followed by a clinical trial if milestones are met.

Please make sure you are using the most current version of these RFA’s – dated 10/1/19.

The summary of available RFAs is posted below.
