AHA: Youth Vaping and Nicotine Research Initiative

American Heart Association: Youth Vaping and Nicotine Research Initiative

Award Amount: $7-10M over two years
Application Due Date: January 7, 2020

The AHA is committing up to $20 million to fund two or three (2-3) bold, ground-breaking research projects focused on the health impacts of nicotine and nicotine delivery products in children and youth. The AHA seeks to accelerate desperately needed answers about the health effects of e-cigarettes and other novel nicotine delivery devices (ENNDs) and how to prevent and/or reverse the developing epidemic of nicotine addiction, among children and youth (defined as 15-24 years of age).

The American Heart Association (AHA) is uniquely positioned to launch a bold research initiative addressing key gaps in basic, clinical, and behavioral science related to e-cigarette use and nicotine addiction in children and youth. Based on the latest available and emerging evidence, the AHA has identified a number of topics of priority interest; however, they should not be considered exclusive. Innovative, original research proposals leading to rapid discovery will be of the highest interest.
