The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invites research grant applications
for Translational Research Centers in Behavioral Science (TRCBS). The purpose of
these centers is to support the translation of work from basic behavioral science
research, and relevant integrative neuroscience research, to pressing issues
regarding all aspects of mental disorders. Such clinical issues include an
understanding of the etiology and assessment of disorders; the assessment of
functioning; development of innovative and culturally appropriate preventive,
treatment, and rehabilitation interventions; and improvement of methods for the
effective delivery of mental health services. The centers are also intended to
encourage basic behavioral scientists to seek a further understanding of behavioral
processes through an exploration of how those processes are altered by mental and
behavioral disorders.

These Centers are intended to support integrated research teams drawn from the
fields of basic behavioral and social sciences, neuroscience, epidemiology,
prevention, academic mental health, and mental health services delivery. Centers
are to develop hypothesis-driven approaches to an important research question, or a
focused set of research questions, using innovative designs and cutting-edge
approaches to methodological and statistical issues. An important goal of the
centers is to transcend the barriers of disciplines, research settings, and
institutions in order to harness the full range of modern behavioral science to the
service of the nations critical mental health needs. (See the Institute of
Medicine report, Bridging Disciplines in the Brain, Behavioral, and Clinical
Sciences, available at http://books.nap.edu/catalog/9942.html.)

This Program Announcement (PA) is one of two announcements developed in response to
a report written by the National Advisory Mental Health Councils Behavioral
Science Workgroup, entitled Translating Behavioral Science into Action
(http://www.nimh.nih.gov/publicat/nimhtranslating.pdf). The other announcement describes a range of collaborative arrangements designed to foster smaller-scale and
developmental activities in translational research in the behavioral sciences (see
RFA-MH-01-005 at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-MH-01-005.html).
