NIH CFAR Supplement Announcement in HIV/AIDS – FY2019

The University of Miami CFAR program would like to announce an NIH FY19 supplement opportunity. This year there are eight scientific areas of interest. Each CFAR can submit a maximum of four supplement applications for topics 1-5. CFARs can submit one application each to the equipment and TB topics. Each inter-CFAR group is permitted to submit one meeting application.

Purpose and Scientific Areas of Interest

The purpose of this administrative supplement opportunity is to support innovative research projects, inter-CFAR meetings, and shared instrumentation that address key gaps in HIV/AIDS and will advance the field. This opportunity should build research capacity and be consistent with the recent NIH HIV/AIDS research priorities (NOT-OD-15-137).

Topics 1 and 2 must be responsive to the overall Ending the HIV Epidemic (EtHE): A Plan for America initiative which is focused on four key pillars (Diagnose, Treat, Protect, and Respond). For additional information and background on the EtHE initiative, please refer to the special CFAR/ARC announcement (released on March 4, 2019).

1. Promoting Viral Suppression in Health Disparity Populations Engaged in HIV Care in Rural Communities
2. HIV Healthcare Systems and Differentiated Care Approaches to Improve Viral Suppression
3. Elucidating Metabolic Consequences of PrEP and ART
4. Obesogenic Mechanisms During HIV Infection
5. Innovative Technologies for Basic Research on HIV and Comorbidities
6. Equipment for CFAR Core(s)
7. Inter-CFAR Meeting
8. Tuberculosis Research (supported by Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID), NIAID –TB mono-infection studies allowed)

Applications will undergo an internal review process and those applications which are chosen can then be submitted to the NIH (submission instructions to NIH can be found in the application announcement). Applications will be judged on feasibility and appropriateness of budget in addition to scientific merit as described in the announcement below.
