Project Scope

Proposed research projects must be aligned with NIH NOT-OD-20-018: UPDATE: NIH HIV/AIDS Research Priorities and Guidelines for Determining HIV/AIDS Funding (the Priorities) and should address Latinx-population needs in the United States. International research may be allowed if it is a small subset of a larger domestic study. For more information about international research see the FAQ page.

The proposed research project should be achievable within a 20-month research implementation period.

Eligible research topics may include but are not limited to:

Clinical trials, as defined in NOT-OD-15-015, cannot be funded. This includes any research study in which one or more human subjects are prospectively assigned to one or more interventions (which may include placebo or other control) to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes.

Some clinical research will require additional NIH review. See the FAQ page for more information. If an applicant is unsure if their proposed approach qualifies as clinical research or a clinical trial, or if it will require additional NIH CFAR clinical review, please contact the CFAR Adelante Science Officer, Dr. Maria Cecilia Zea, at to discuss the proposed research.
