Application Receipt Date:  December 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 therapeutics 
development program.  IIP is designed to help AIDS research investigators 
facilitate the pre-clinical 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 

The current deadline for receipt of applications is December 1, 2002; 
prior to that date (no later than November 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
