NIAID seeks applicants to lead clinical trials units for revamped HIV/AIDS networks

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) today announced that it is soliciting applications from U.S. and overseas research institutions seeking to become Clinical Trials Units (CTUs) in the Institute's revamped HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks.

The networks emerging from that RFA will focus on developing and evaluating treatments, prevention strategies and vaccines, with an emphasis on interventions that can be employed in resource-limited settings. The Clinical Trials Units funded in response to this RFA will carry out the research agendas of those networks in one or more of the following six priority areas of investigation:
