Description: Purpose. This FOA issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), encourages Exploratory Developmental Research Grant (R21) applications for early and conceptual stages of research on drug abuse aspects of HIV/AIDS, including research on drug-related risk behaviors, addiction and HIV disease, and drug use/HIV-related comorbidities and consequences. Proposals are needed to identify and predict changes in the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS among injection and non-injection drug users and among their sexual partners, to develop and test primary and secondary drug abuse and HIV prevention and treatment interventions, to improve HIV testing, counseling, and treatment services for those living with HIV/AIDS, and to address basic mechanisms involved in HIV infection and AIDS pathogenesis in the context of drug abuse and addiction. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) award mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-10-129 that encourages applications under the R01 and PA-10-131 that encourages applications under the R03 mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
