Drug Agency Hikes Spending For Research

WASHINGTON—The National Institute on Drug Abuse will award more than $155 million in research funds this year. The 77 percent increase over last year is due largely to the President's initiative on drug abuse, and the drug-AIDS connection. Officials said $31 million will be directed toward AIDS research, a 340 percent increase over last year.

WASHINGTON—The National Institute on Drug Abuse will award more than $155 million in research funds this year. The 77 percent increase over last year is due largely to the President's initiative on drug abuse, and the drug-AIDS connection.

Officials said $31 million will be directed toward AIDS research, a 340 percent increase over last year. The administration's $1.5 billion program to combat drugs, which includes funds for military interdiction and anti-crime measures, contains $27 million for drug-related research.

The deadline for grant proposals is February 1 for most fields of inquiry; however, an extension to April 1 has been provided in some areas. Among these are studies on AIDS prevention, cocaine, the pharmacokinetics of drug abuse and genetic vulnerability to drug abuse.
