Applications should use large data sets data science approaches develop computational models social networks examine association between social influence substance use/misuse among individuals their peers. Background Social contagion the spread affect behavior person person among larger groups. Social network theory study how people, organizations, groups interact others inside network) its analysis been recent focus public health issues. Although has primarily used analyze predict transmission infectious diseases, social network theory also applied chronic behavioral conditions, including substance disorders, social factors their interactions age sex important determinants substance use. Research Objectives NIDA interested projects leverage big data sets utilize machine learning algorithms gain new knowledge related the behaviors associated substance disorders that facilitate prediction, prevention response epidemics substance disorders. Analyses should involve large datasets data science approaches develop computational models social networks examine substance use/misuse peer use/misuse propagated among social networks. Areas programmatic interest NIDA include, are limited to: Whether next epidemic substance disorders/secular trends substance behaviors be predicted social network analysis e.g., crack epidemic the 1990s the current opioid epidemic) social networks be used prevent epidemics related or caused substance behaviors social networks impact substance use, misuse, recovery processes New adapted interventions leverage social networks prevent substance use, misuse support recovery processes Relationships between “in real life” virtual social networks influencing substance behaviors recovery Examination multigenerational social network models incorporate families family structures vectors social influence, including effects familial substance behaviors effects peer substance use/misuse individuals within social network influences interpersonal networks mass media substance use, misuse, recovery network structures e.g., strength ties) influence substance use, misuse, recovery role social media plays influencing substance use, misuse, recovery changes social network composition structure influence recovery processes Examination how social network structure composition among service providers e.g., behavioral health providers, police, physicians) influence substance behavior recovery outcomes people receiving services Application Submission Information: notice applies due dates or after date subsequent receipt dates through January 8, 2023.
