Collaborative Consortia for the Study of HIV-Associated Cancers: U.S. and Low-and Middle-Income Country Partnerships (U54)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to fund research on HIV-associated cancers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) through collaborative efforts between investigators in United States (U.S.) and investigators in LMICs. The FOA will also support the enhancement of research capacity of LMIC institutions for research in this area. The FOA solicits applications for Specialized Center Cooperative Agreements (U54) for research on HIV-associated cancers from research institutions in the U.S. and LMICs. Each application is required to propose between two to three research projects that address high-priority questions relevant to both the LMIC and the NIH HIV/AIDS research agenda. The proposed projects may range, as appropriate, from basic research to translational efforts as well as population and implementation studies. Clinical trials, however, will not be supported. In addition, the proposed consortium must include two mandatory cores; an Administrative Core and a Career Enhancement Core. Additional cores such as Shared Resource cores may be included as appropriate for the needs of the projects.
