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.

This solicitation, the second of two Requests for Applications (RFAs), is designed to increase the efficiency, accountability and integration of NIAID's HIV/AIDS clinical research networks and enhance their capacity to effectively conduct vital clinical research, especially in resource-limited settings.

The first solicitation, "Leadership for HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks," was released in November 2004. 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:

  • Developing HIV vaccines

  • Optimizing clinical management of HIV/AIDS, including co-infections and other HIV-related conditions
