NIMH: Seeking Applications for Center Core Grants to support HIV/AIDS Research Center

Deadline: 11 September 2018

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is seeking applications for Center Core Grants (P30) to support an HIV/AIDS Research Center (ARC) to provide infrastructural support that facilitates the development of high impact science in HIV/AIDS relevant to the NIMH mission.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to develop and maintain collaborations with industry, government, community, implementing agencies, and other scientific networks and institutions, to optimize the impact of Center-supported scientific advances and activities.

To address these continuing researches to service gaps, informed by local needs, there should be strong emphasis on potential collaborations with entities funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Human Resource Services Administration (HRSA), other implementing agencies, and/or local health departments.

Research Areas

Potential research areas that may serve as organizing themes or key areas of interest for the overall research strategy of the Center include but are not limited to:

  • Identification of mutable multi-level risk and resilience factors that are associated with HIV infection, including individual, contextual, systemic, and structural factors which can facilitate or impede optimal access and use of effective HIV prevention and treatment. Mental health factors are an important subset of this constellation of potential areas for inquiry that is a high priority to DAR.
  • Development and testing of feasible and cost-effective interventions to modify the risk and protective multi-level factors, in order to determine the most effective combination of interventions for HIV prevention and to improve HIV care continuum outcomes.
  • Development and testing of methods and strategies to aid HIV-infected individuals and their families to cope with HIV infection; engage in HIV/AIDS care and other services to enhance quality of life and improve health outcomes; prevent complications and reduce the impact of co-morbidities (especially mental disorders); and avoid new sexually transmitted illnesses and the onward transmission of HIV.
  • Identification of the effects of HIV infection of the central nervous system (CNS).
  • Identification of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying HIV-induced CNS dysfunction.
  • Development and testing of potential therapeutics to prevent or treat HIV/CNS disease.
  • Identification of latent HIV/CNS reservoirs and testing of novel eradication strategies targeting the brain.
  • Examination of the issues influencing adherence and non-adherence to HIV prevention and treatment regimens, and development and testing of methods to improve sustained adherence to drug therapy regimens.
  • Development and testing of strategies to translate effective prevention and HIV care continuum interventions into real world settings both domestically and internationally, and the use of implementation science approaches to achieve public health impact.
  • Development of effective strategies to integrate behavioral science with biomedical advances in HIV prevention and treatment.

Funding Information

  • Applicants may request up to $1,100,000 direct costs per year.
