Letter of Intent:          May 1, 2002
Application Receipt Date:  June 1, 2002

The Inter-Institute Program for the Development of AIDS-Related Therapeutics 
(IIP) is co-sponsored by The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious 
Diseases (NIAID) and National Cancer Institute (NCI).  Investigators are 
invited to submit proposals to this drug development program.  IIP is 
designed to help AIDS research investigators facilitate the preclinical 
development of: 1) therapies for the treatment of HIV disease, AIDS-
associated malignancies, opportunistic infections and tuberculosis associated 
with AIDS, and 2) microbicide-based prevention strategies for HIV.  IIP does 
not fund grants.  Instead, applications to the program are requests to use 
IIP drug development resources to conduct specific tasks the applicants 
themselves are unable to carry out in their efforts to translate basic 
research findings to applied or clinical practice.  Examples of tasks that 
may be requested include High Throughput Screen (HTS) assay development, 
evaluation in animal efficacy models, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) 
scale-up synthesis of small molecules and biologics, clinical dosage 
formulation and manufacturing, and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) toxicology.  
Program proposals are solicited twice per year on June 1 and December 1 and 
reviewed in a competitive manner.  

The current deadline for receipt of applications is June 1, 2002; no later 
than May 1, 2002 a Letter of Intent must be submitted to the Inter-Institute 
Program Coordinator.  Further information about this program, including 
detailed instructions for preparing proposals and the Letter of Intent, can 
be found at the program web site at
