The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) seeks 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 (applicants may have an existing R01 grant but not one combining drug abuse and HIV/AIDS research). HIV/AIDS research is a major focus at NIDA, but it is often difficult for new investigators to obtain independent funding to generate preliminary data or for early career investigators doing drug abuse or HIV/AIDS research to identify a source of funding that would allow them to expand their research to study the intersection of drug abuse and HIV/AIDS research. To promote the entry of new investigators into research on the natural history, epidemiology, etiology and pathogenesis, prevention, and treatment of HIV/AIDS in drug abusers, this AIDS--Science Track Award for Research Transition (A-START) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) (R03) will support:
It is expected that investigators who are funded under A-START will use their data to develop R01 grant applications on the intersection of drug abuse and HIV/AIDS.
Applications under this FOA are welcomed from all areas of HIV/AIDS research that NIDA supports. The FOA provides up to $200,000 support over a two year period and allows flexibility in budgeting, (i.e., funds may be divided evenly over two years or may be divided unevenly, with a maximum of up to $100,000 per year). The funding levels and funding flexibility are designed to accommodate the full range of HIV/AIDS studies that NIDA supports, but the amount requested and allocation of funds between the two years must be justified in the application. Applications are non-renewable.
NIDA research on HIV/AIDS is multidisciplinary, domestic and international, human and animal (ex vivo, in vivo, and in vitro studies) and includes, but is not limited to, studies in the following areas:
Drug Abuse and HIV Prevention--Studies preparatory to development of interventions to prevent the acquisition and transmission of HIV among drug using populations. This may include pilot or formative research to improve access to and utilization of HIV counseling and testing and linkage of HIV+ individuals to treatment and services as well as studies of individual, small group, community, and structural-level interventions. Studies of drug abuse treatment as HIV prevention, including studies on the development and testing of behavioral and combined behavioral and pharmacological interventions focused on drug abstinence and HIV prevention for adolescents and adults. Secondary analyses which may help elucidate the effective components of existing interventions also are of interest. Particular attention should be given to vulnerable populations highly affected by HIV/AIDS including sexual minorities, racial/ethnic minorities, and persons in the criminal justice system.
Drug Abuse and HIV/AIDS Treatment--Basic, clinical, and applied research on the treatment of HIV/AIDS and co-occurring infections such as hepatitis C, TB, and STIs among drug abusers, including services research studies on adherence to therapeutic (HIV and drug abuse treatment) regimens and integration of HIV care and drug abuse treatment. Studies of drug-drug interactions between drugs of abuse and medications to treat drug addiction, HIV/AIDS, co-infections, and co-morbid conditions.
Epidemiology and Natural History of HIV/AIDS Among Drug Using Populations--Research to improve monitoring of trends in the epidemic, changing clinical manifestations of HIV disease and co-morbid conditions, and measure the effects of treatment regimens (i.e., antiretroviral and substance abuse) in drug using populations. Also, studies of changing social, behavioral, and demographic risk factors and health disparities associated with HIV/AIDS and drug abuse and the effect of changing drug use patterns on HIV acquisition, transmission, and clinical course.
Drug Abuse and Etiology and Pathogenesis of HIV/AIDS--Studies to better understand how HIV infection is established and maintained in drug using populations and research on the social, medical, and health consequences of HIV/AIDS among drug abusers. Basic, clinical, and translational studies to better understand the neuroimmune, neurocognitive, neurobiological, genetic, epigenetic and behavioral factors associated with HIV/AIDS pathogenesis. Research to determine how drugs of abuse influence early events that affect the establishment and systemic spread of HIV infection and/or co-infection and subsequent disease progression. Studies to delineate the mechanisms by which drugs of abuse or drug abuse behaviors alter innate, adaptive, and/or mucosal immunities and how these changes affect HIV infectivity and pathogenesis.
Drugs of Abuse and Behavior---Research to elucidate the effects of drugs of abuse on behavioral processes associated with HIV risk behaviors (e.g., decision making, self-regulation, impulsivity) across the life span and to understand the neurobiological substrates underlying these processes. Also, studies to inform interventions that improve the health and development of people (particularly young people) living with HIV/AIDS or affected by HIV/AIDS and drug abuse.
Investigators are encouraged, when appropriate, to utilize the Clinical Trials Network (CTN) (http://www.drugabuse.gov/CTN/Index.htm) infrastructure as a platform for their studies.
Additional information about NIDA’s HIV/AIDS priority research areas is available at: http://www.nida.nih.gov/about/organization/arp/. This Web site also lists NIDA AIDS Workgroup members and their program areas. Workgroup members can provide programmatic guidance to applicants.
HIV/AIDS Counseling and Testing Policy for the National Institute on Drug Abuse: In light of recent significant advances in rapid testing for HIV and in effective treatments for HIV, NIDA has revised its 2001 policy on HIV counseling and testing. NIDA-funded researchers are strongly encouraged to provide and/or refer research subjects to HIV risk reduction education and education about the benefits of HIV treatment, counseling and testing, referral to treatment, and other appropriate interventions to prevent acquisition and transmission of HIV. This policy applies to all NIDA funded research conducted domestically or internationally. For more information seehttp://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DA-07-013.html.
National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse Recommended Guidelines for the Administration of Drugs to Human Subjects: The National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse (NACDA) recognizes the importance of research involving the administration of drugs with abuse potential, and dependence or addiction liability, to human subjects. Potential applicants are encouraged to obtain and review these recommendations of Council before submitting an application that will administer compounds to human subjects. The guidelines are available on NIDA's Web site at http://www.nida.nih.gov/about/organization/nacda/CouncilStatement.html.
Points to Consider Regarding Tobacco Industry Funding of NIDA Applicants: The National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse (NACDA) encourages NIDA and its grantees to consider the points it has set forth with regard to existing or prospective sponsored research agreements with tobacco companies or their related entities and the impact of acceptance of tobacco industry funding on NIDA's credibility and reputation within the scientific community. Please see (http://ww2.drugabuse.gov/about/organization/nacda/points-to-consider.html) for details.
Data Harmonization for Substance Abuse and Addiction via the PhenX Toolkit: NIDA strongly encourages investigators involved in human-subjects studies to employ a common set of tools and resources that will promote the collection of comparable data across studies and to do so by incorporating the measures from the Core and Specialty collections, which are available in the Substance Abuse and Addiction Collection of the PhenX Toolkit (www.phenxtoolkit.org). Please see NOT-DA-12-008 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DA-12-008.html) for further details.

Only the review criteria described below will be considered in the review process. As part of the NIH mission, all applications submitted to the NIH in support of biomedical and behavioral research are evaluated for scientific and technical merit through the NIH peer review system.
For this particular announcement, note the following:
The R03 small grant supports discrete, well-defined projects that realistically can be completed in two years and that require limited levels of funding. Because the research project usually is limited, an R03 grant application may not contain extensive detail or discussion. Accordingly, reviewers should evaluate the conceptual framework and general approach to the problem. Appropriate justification for the proposed work can be provided through literature citations, data from other sources, or from investigator-generated data. Preliminary data are not required, particularly in applications proposing pilot or feasibility studies.
Reviewers will provide an overall impact/priority score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved, in consideration of the following review criteria and additional review criteria (as applicable for the project proposed).
Reviewers will consider each of the review criteria below in the determination of scientific merit, and give a separate score for each. An application does not need to be strong in all categories to be judged likely to have major scientific impact. For example, a project that by its nature is not innovative may be essential to advance a field.
Does the project address an important problem or a critical barrier to progress in the field? If the aims of the project are achieved, how will scientific knowledge, technical capability, and/or clinical practice be improved? How will successful completion of the aims change the concepts, methods, technologies, treatments, services, or preventative interventions that drive this field?
Are the PD(s)/PI(s), collaborators, and other researchers well suited to the project? If Early Stage Investigators or New Investigators, or in the early stages of independent careers, do they have appropriate experience and training? If established, have they demonstrated an ongoing record of accomplishments that have advanced their field(s)? If the project is collaborative or multi-PD/PI, do the investigators have complementary and integrated expertise; are their leadership approach, governance and organizational structure appropriate for the project?
Does the application challenge and seek to shift current research or clinical practice paradigms by utilizing novel theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions? Are the concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions novel to one field of research or novel in a broad sense? Is a refinement, improvement, or new application of theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions proposed?
Are the overall strategy, methodology, and analyses
well-reasoned and appropriate to accomplish the specific aims of the project?
Are potential problems, alternative strategies, and benchmarks for success
presented? If the project is in the early stages of development, will the
strategy establish feasibility and will particularly risky aspects be
If the project involves clinical research, are the plans for 1) protection of human subjects from research risks, and 2) inclusion of minorities and members of both sexes/genders, as well as the inclusion of children, justified in terms of the scientific goals and research strategy proposed?
Will the scientific environment in which the work will be done contribute to the probability of success? Are the institutional support, equipment and other physical resources available to the investigators adequate for the project proposed? Will the project benefit from unique features of the scientific environment, subject populations, or collaborative arrangements?
As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will evaluate the following additional items while determining scientific and technical merit, and in providing an overall impact/priority score, but will not give separate scores for these items.
Protections for Human Subjects
For research that involves human subjects but does
not involve one of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR
Part 46, the committee will evaluate the justification for involvement of human
subjects and the proposed protections from research risk relating to their
participation according to the following five review criteria: 1) risk to
subjects, 2) adequacy of protection against risks, 3) potential benefits to the
subjects and others, 4) importance of the knowledge to be gained, and 5) data
and safety monitoring for clinical trials.
For research that involves human subjects and meets the criteria for one or more of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate: 1) the justification for the exemption, 2) human subjects involvement and characteristics, and 3) sources of materials. For additional information on review of the Human Subjects section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.
Inclusion of Women, Minorities, and Children
When the proposed project involves clinical research, the committee will evaluate the proposed plans for inclusion of minorities and members of both genders, as well as the inclusion of children. For additional information on review of the Inclusion section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.
The committee will evaluate the involvement of live vertebrate animals as part of the scientific assessment according to the following five points: 1) proposed use of the animals, and species, strains, ages, sex, and numbers to be used; 2) justifications for the use of animals and for the appropriateness of the species and numbers proposed; 3) adequacy of veterinary care; 4) procedures for limiting discomfort, distress, pain and injury to that which is unavoidable in the conduct of scientifically sound research including the use of analgesic, anesthetic, and tranquilizing drugs and/or comfortable restraining devices; and 5) methods of euthanasia and reason for selection if not consistent with the AVMA Guidelines on Euthanasia. For additional information on review of the Vertebrate Animals section, please refer to the Worksheet for Review of the Vertebrate Animal Section.
Reviewers will assess whether materials or procedures proposed are potentially hazardous to research personnel and/or the environment, and if needed, determine whether adequate protection is proposed.
For Resubmissions, the committee will evaluate the application as now presented, taking into consideration the responses to comments from the previous scientific review group and changes made to the project.
As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will consider each of the following items, but will not give scores for these items, and should not consider them in providing an overall impact/priority score.
Applications from Foreign Organizations
Reviewers will assess whether the project presents special opportunities for furthering research programs through the use of unusual talent, resources, populations, or environmental conditions that exist in other countries and either are not readily available in the United States or augment existing U.S. resources.
Select Agent Research
Reviewers will assess the information provided in this section of the application, including 1) the Select Agent(s) to be used in the proposed research, 2) the registration status of all entities where Select Agent(s) will be used, 3) the procedures that will be used to monitor possession use and transfer of Select Agent(s), and 4) plans for appropriate biosafety, biocontainment, and security of the Select Agent(s).
Resource Sharing Plans
Reviewers will comment on whether the following Resource Sharing Plans, or the rationale for not sharing the following types of resources, are reasonable: 1) Data Sharing Plan; 2) Sharing Model Organisms; and 3) Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS).
Budget and Period of Support
Reviewers will consider whether the budget and the requested period of support are fully justified and reasonable in relation to the proposed research.
Applications will be evaluated for scientific and technical merit by (an) appropriate Scientific Review Group(s), in accordance with NIH peer review policy and procedures, using the stated review criteria. Review assignments will be shown in the eRA Commons.
As part of the scientific peer review, all applications:
Applications will be assigned to the appropriate NIH Institute or Center. Applications will compete for available funds with all other recommended applications . Following initial peer review, recommended applications will receive a second level of review by the National Institute on Drug Abuse Advisory Council. The following will be considered in making funding decisions:
After the peer review of the application is completed, the PD(s)/PI(s) will be able to access his or her Summary Statement (written critique) via the eRA Commons.
Information regarding the disposition of applications is available in the NIH Grants Policy Statement.
