  • Deadline: 6/1/2009 Second Deadline: 12/1/2009
  • Details: Linked Standard Research Grants support studies that aim to increase understanding of the causes of suicide and factors related to suicide risk, or to test treatments and other interventions designed to prevent suicide. Both basic science and applied research projects will be considered, providing the study has an essential focus on suicide or suicide prevention. The grants are awarded to investigators to support research on suicide from a variety of disciplines, including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, health services administration, and many others. The grants are not intended to support the development or implementation of prevention programs, educational programs, treatments, or other interventions that do not have a significant research component. These grants are intended to fund new directions and initiatives in suicide research rather than to supplement the applicant's existing research and their junior investigators.
