NOT-AA-21-036 - Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for HIV Prevention and Alcohol (R34 Clinical Trials Optional)

Issued by

National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)

Purpose

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) intends to promote a new initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications to expand the HIV/AIDS prevention toolkit among alcohol impacted populations with a range of patterns of episodic and long-term use and associated behavioral and biological risks for HIV acquisition. This includes integration of effective prevention and treatment interventions with an understanding of the overarching framework for reducing the incidence of new infections by facilitating cross-cutting informative research. This research activity includes the development and testing of new interventions and expansion of existing effective interventions as well as the implementation of these integrative preventive activities in diverse settings and populations. Six areas of research are of primary interest related to alcohol use and related mental health and substance use comorbidities. These include but are not limited to 1) PrEP Utilization, 2) Treatment as Prevention (TasP), 3) Integration of Preventive Intervention Strategies, 4) Prevention-related Cross-cutting Research, 5) Syndemic Approaches and, 6) Implementation and Operations Research.

This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. 

The FOA is expected to be published in Summer 2021 with an expected application due date in Fall 2021.

This FOA will utilize the R01 Clinical Trial Optional activity code. Details of the planned FOA are provided below.

Research Initiative Details

This Notice encourages investigators with expertise and insights into these areas of behavorial, biological, and clinical science to begin to consider applying for this new FOA.

In addition, collaborative investigations combining expertise in these areas will be encouraged and these investigators should also begin considering applying for this new FOA.

The areas of research encouraged in this initiative may also be designed to improve the translation of existing knowledge of strategies for the prevention and treatment of alcohol misuse to impact the prevention of infection and transmission of HIV.
