Deadline: 21 April 2017
The National Institutes of Health is seeking applications for its program entitled ” Interaction of HIV and Neurodevelopment of Children in Resource-Limited Settings: Improving Assessments” to focus on the development and/or improvement of tools and/or materials for the neurodevelopmental assessment of cognitive functioning of children, and their implementation in resource-limited settings with high rates of HIV.
The importance of non-invasive assessment of child cognitive development using neuropsychological approaches is necessary for the monitoring of normally-developing achievement, as well as emerging and continuing cognitive deficits related to HIV as well as its treatment.
Areas of Interest
- Development of novel, simple, non-invasive or minimally invasive screening tools/measures of assessment of cognitive functioning in children, exposed to and/or infected with HIV
- Innovative and novel methods of monitoring neurocognitive functioning that require minimal staff training, to be evaluated among children exposed to and/or infected with HIV
- Validation of existing assessment measures/strategies, including cultural relevance, in RLS with high rates of HIV for children
- Implementation studies of neurodevelopmental assessment materials in RLS, utilizing the available clinical infrastructure, among populations of interest; utilization of existing cohorts of children with HIV for investigation and/or analyses of neurodevelopment
