The purpose of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Collaborative Research Partnerships (CRP) on the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS is to support innovative and basic research for the prevention and treatment of HIV infection and transmission that will advance the field of HIV/AIDS research through the collaborative efforts of United States and Russian investigators and their institutions.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) supports international collaborative research and research training on HIV/AIDS and the exchange of scientific information by HIV/AIDS researchers around the world. Scientific cooperation during the global HIV/AIDS pandemic has been strengthened between the U.S. and Russia. Further cooperative research and capacity-building focused on HIV/AIDS would be of mutual benefit to both countries. This effort is under the auspices of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission and references the Memorandum of Understanding between the Department of Health and Human Services of the United States of America and the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation on Cooperation in the field of Public Health and Medical Science, signed on July 6, 2009. The focus of this effort is joint HIV prevention studies between American and Russian research scientists affiliated with universities, research institutes, and other organizations and centers engaged in fundamental biomedical and behavioral research. The studies may include but are not limited to the support of HIV genomics, HIV-associated co-infections, and HIV-associated co-morbidities. An agreement signed in 2011 between the NIH and the RFBR seeks to facilitate and support collaborative research partnerships (CRPs) among researchers and institutions in the U.S. and Russia.
A critical feature of this FOA is the establishment and support of Collaborative Research Partnerships (CRPs) among researchers and institutions in the U.S. and Russia. Applications may be derived from collaborations with an established history of interaction, or from new partnerships developed in response to this FOA. The CRP must be based on interactive relationships that maximize the expertise of the individual U.S. and Russian research teams and interactions between their parent institutions and granting agencies. It is expected that this unique opportunity available through the U.S.-Russia CRP will foster collaborative partnerships that will mature into joint programs to pursue and develop HIV/AIDS prevention strategies/interventions beyond the scope of the work proposed in the R21 application.
Joint research projects between U.S. and Russian scientists on fundamental and applied research in the field of HIV prevention and treatment are the focus of this FOA. By fundamental research, NIH refers to science that is directed toward increasing knowledge and understanding in behavioral, social, and biomedical topics that will eventually impact HIV/AIDS and HIV-associated co-infections, co-morbidities, and complications. These efforts form the scientific basis for subsequent advances in interventions – and large-scale clinical testing of interventions in the biomedical disciplines, this could include: research in basic microbiology, basic virology, basic immunology, and pathogenesis; these studies may eventually contribute to the development of a vaccine, microbicide, or therapeutic drug. In the behavioral and social sciences, this would include basic studies (e.g., formative research, mixed-methods studies) to better understand the factors that contribute to HIV-testing, linkage and retention in HIV care, treatment adherence, and HIV prevention behaviors. A better understanding of these processes may lead to the development of more effective behavioral interventions. Development and small-scale testing of innovative interventions also would be considered as fundamental and social science research.
Fundamental and applied research including capacity building is encouraged in a variety of HIV-affected populations (for example, women, Men who have Sex with Men (MSM), substance users, and adolescents) in the following priority areas:
HIV pathogenesis, and that may affect or predict the effectiveness of prevention and/or intervention strategies for HIV and HIV-associated co-morbidities
Applicants are also encouraged to integrate these important domains- for example, a study to examine behavioral/adherence facilitators of microbicide use, or studies regarding the basic science or genomics of HIV in the context of vaccine development.
Examples of topic areas that may be supported include, but are not limited to:
Basic Science of HIV
Behavioral and Social Science
Applications in the following areas will NOT be considered responsive and will be returned without review:
Grant: A support mechanism providing money, property, or both to an eligible entity to carry out an approved project or activity.

encouraged to apply for NIH support.
For institutions/organizations proposing multiple PDs/PIs, visit the Multiple Program Director/Principal Investigator Policy and submission details in the Senior/Key Person Profile (Expanded) Component of the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide.
This FOA does not require cost sharing as defined in the NIH Grants Policy Statement.
Applicant organizations may submit more than one application, provided that each application is scientifically distinct.
NIH will not accept any application that is essentially the same as one already reviewed within the past thirty-seven months (as described in the NIH Grants Policy Statement), except for submission:
Applicants must download the SF424 (R&R) application package associated with this funding opportunity using the “Apply for Grant Electronically” button in this FOA or following the directions provided at Grants.gov.
It is critical that applicants follow the instructions in the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide, except where instructed in this funding opportunity announcement to do otherwise. Conformance to the requirements in the Application Guide is required and strictly enforced. Applications that are out of compliance with these instructions may be delayed or not accepted for review.
For information on Application Submission and Receipt, visit Frequently Asked Questions – Application Guide, Electronic Submission of Grant Applications.
The forms package associated with this FOA includes all applicable components, mandatory and optional. Please note that some components marked optional in the application package are required for submission of applications for this FOA. Follow all instructions in the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide to ensure you complete all appropriate “optional” components.
All page limitations described in the SF424 Application Guide and the Table of Page Limits must be followed, with the following addition:
The NIH modular budget concept is NOT to be used. Even though the budget for the R21 phase is limited, applications must present the detailed SF424 (R&R) Budget forms for all years. The budget justification must include information about where the funds will be utilized.
Other Attachments. Applicants are required to include a Collaborative Strategy as an "Other Attachment." The Collaborative Strategy must include a description of the following information:
All instructions in the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide must be followed, with the following additional instructions:
Within the page limit, indicate which partner of the collaboration (U.S., Russia, or jointly) will be responsible for accomplishment for each proposed specific aim.
Applicants should propose a single Research Plan for the combined efforts of the two organizations (U.S. and Russian collaborators). The Research Strategy should provide a complete description of the research, demonstrating the integration of the two researchers’ efforts. Within the page limitation of the Research Strategy section, there needs to be a plan for how resources will be shared and detail how the coordination will benefit HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment science.
In preparing the R21 application, investigators should consider clarity and completeness of the application with regard to specific goals and the proposed interactions of the U.S. and Russian collaborators. A poorly developed collaboration strategy that is not sufficient for assessing the potential for a successful R21 research effort may reflect poorly on the scientific merit of the application.
The duration and resources of the R21 exploratory/developmental grant mechanism do not allow for the conclusive and powered testing of proposed single and combination prevention and treatment strategies. However, this mechanism does accommodate the performance of incremental studies or interventions that can either support progression to more comprehensive studies or provide evidence that the proposed intervention is not effective. CRP applications should incorporate activities that can test and pilot specific prevention and treatment interventions.
The proposed studies must take into account the time limit and budget imposed by this mechanism (See Section II: Award Information). Where possible, the proposed studies should interact with ongoing prevention and treatment efforts in the U.S. and Russia and/or propose to integrate with existing Russian government-supported prevention programs, including non-governmental organizations.
Letters of Support
Include letters of support from the Russian partner(s) participating in the research effort.
Resource Sharing Plan

For this particular announcement, note the following:
The R21 exploratory/developmental grant supports investigation of novel scientific ideas or new model systems, tools, or technologies that have the potential for significant impact on biomedical or biobehavioral research. An R21 grant application need not have extensive background material or preliminary information. Accordingly, reviewers will focus their evaluation on the conceptual framework, the level of innovation, and the potential to significantly advance our knowledge or understanding. Appropriate justification for the proposed work can be provided through literature citations, data from other sources, or, when available, from investigator-generated data. Preliminary data are not required for R21 applications; however, they may be included if available.
Reviewers will provide an overall impact 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? Are plans for collaboration and communications between the U.S. and Russian partners well described and as described will they enhance the interactions and contributions of the participating groups?
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 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.
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 score.
Applications from Foreign Organizations
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.
