Abstract : The goal of the PASA Consortium is to fund research that aims to identify and develop new medications to improve treatment outcomes for alcohol and substance use disorders (ASUD), especially those that occur concurrently with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In the first year the consortium solicited proposals through an RFA and selected four research studies for further development and funding. The consortium also developed a Manual of Operations, an Intellectual Property Agreement, a fully operational website with private and public access, and fully executed subcontracts between all consortium leadership partners. In tandem with the development of the four studies selected from the first RFA, the consortium developed a second draft RFA and a plan for distribution to solicit a Phase II clinical trial.
