A New Eating Disorders RFA!!!

As you may remember last summer the EDC worked to ensure that the Senate Appropriations Committee agreed to FY 2013 funding for federally financed health research. The Bill contained a congressional directive "urging the National Institute of Health (NIH) to expand, intensify, and coordinate its research on eating disorders and to examine the possibility of creating collaborative consortia on eating disorders research".
Yesterday, we saw the first result of that language, a Request for Application (RFA) was released by NIH. See here for the text of the RFA.
