The Alcohol and Other Substance Use Research Education Programs for Health Professionals (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed) Program provides grants to support research educational activities that complement other formal training programs in the mission areas of the NIH Institutes and Centers, especially the public health impact of alcohol, opioids, and other substances, their associated consequences, and the persistent stigma associated with them.

Funding will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on outreach. Activities should emphasize the dissemination of biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research findings from research on alcohol and other substance use to healthcare professionals engaged in direct patient care and clinical service delivery.

For the purposes of this program, the term healthcare professionals is defined as licensed/credentialed healthcare providers, therapists, and allied professionals who provide direct patient care in general or specialty practice settings.

Outreach should include individuals from groups that have been identified as underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences, such as:

  • Individuals from racial and ethnic groups that have been shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in health-related sciences on a national basis, such as Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders
  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Individuals who come from a family with an annual income below established low-income thresholds
  • Individuals who come from an educational environment such as that found in certain rural or inner-city environments that has demonstrably and directly inhibited the individual from obtaining the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to develop and participate in a research career
