National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of AIDS Research (OAR) Training Fellowship Awards
CRDF Global is accepting proposals from early-stage investigators working in the field of HIV research for the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of AIDS Research (OAR) Training Fellowship Awards, 2018. This initiative is funded by CRDF Global [utilizing funds provided by OAR through the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)]. The fellowship program aims to promote the training and inclusion of early-stage scientists in HIV-related collaborative research. It represents the first round of a research training program, building upon ongoing collaborations in HIV research that are co-funded by OAR/NIH and its counterpart funding agencies in countries participating in the NIH bilateral collaborative research programs over the past ten years.
The purpose of the NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR) Training Fellowship Awards, 2018 is to expand capacity in HIV research through participation in short-term research training opportunities for early-stage investigators affiliated with institutions engaged in the bilateral collaborative research programs, which include HIV-related research co-funded by OAR and the counterpart funding agencies in Brazil, China, India, Russia, and South Africa. Investigators from these countries and the U.S. are invited to apply for funding for research training projects, focused on priority areas of HIV research listed below:
- Reduce HIV incidence
- Develop next generation HIV therapies
- Research toward HIV cure
- Address HIV-associated comorbidities, coinfections, and complications
- Cross-cutting research (including basic research, behavioral and social science research, research in health disparities, information dissemination)
