Developmental AIDS Research Centers on Mental Health and HIV/AIDS (P30 Clinical Trial Optional)

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Division of AIDS Research (DAR) encourages applications for Center Core grants (P30) to support Developmental HIV/AIDS Research Centers (D-ARC). The D-ARC is intended to provide infrastructure support that facilitates the development of high impact science in HIV/AIDS and mental health that is relevant to the NIMH mission. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) intends to support innovative, interdisciplinary research in several areas, including basic, NeuroHIV, behavioral and social, biostatistics and data science, integrated biobehavioral, applied, clinical, translational, and implementation science. The intent of D-ARC support is that the proposed core activities will allow the D-ARC to compete successfully for a full NIMH AIDS Research Center (ARC) after the D-ARC award period.
