DHHS/NIH: AIDS-Science Track Award for Research Transition

Deadline: 7 September 2018

The U.S Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking applications for its “AIDS-Science Track Award for Research Transition” to facilitate the entry of investigators to the area of drug abuse research on HIV/AIDS, including both newly independent investigators (independent of a mentor but without R01 funding) and early career investigators who seek to add research on the intersection of drug abuse and HIV/AIDS to their research programs.

AIDS–Science Track Award for Research Transition will support:

  • Pilot or feasibility studies
  • Secondary analysis of existing data
  • Small, self-contained research projects
  • Development of research methodology
  • Development of new research technology

Research Objectives

  • This FOA seeks to promote the entry of new investigators into research on drug abuse and HIV who will conduct studies on: the prevention of HIV acquisition and transmission; HIV treatment including toward a cure research; co-morbidities, co-infections, and complications; and behavioral and social science research to advance treatment and prevention, especially to address the Continuum of Care.
  • NIDA research on HIV/AIDS is broad-based and includes both domestic and international studies and ranges from basic research, including studies using animal models, in vitro, and ex vivo systems, to clinical research to implementation science research. A-START applications are welcome across the breadth of NIDA research.
  • Drug-using populations tend to be marginalized and difficult-to-reach, but achieving an AIDS-free generation will not be possible without understanding the issues facing these populations and developing and implementing effective interventions for them. The drug-using populations that NIDA studies include both injection and non-injection drug users, youth, racial/ethnic/sexual minorities, and criminal justice populations.
