Innovation Grants for AIDS Research
Deadline: September 1

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), encourage the submission of applications to bring new, scientifically challenging and untested ideas into AIDS research. There are a number of critical questions in AIDS research that remain under explored, and new approaches are needed to make progress in these areas. The Public Health Service (PHS) is committed to achieving the health promotion and disease prevention objectives of
?Healthy People 2010,? a PHS-led national activity for setting priority areas. Specifically applications are sought that propose to test novel and significant hypotheses for which there is scant precedent or limited preliminary data and which, if confirmed, would have a substantial impact on current thinking and understanding of HIV/AIDS; or projects that develop innovative techniques or methodologies with in vivo relevance that will provide new insights into HIV pathobiology. The sponsoring NIH institutes are seeking applications in the following areas for this PA: therapeutics discovery, microbicide discovery, and
pathogeneisis research.

Application Process: The grant application form PHS 398 (Rev. 5/2001) is to be used in applying for these grants. The PHS 398 is available at in an interactive format.
