Purpose. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and the Center for Mental Health Research on AIDS of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) encourages NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant applications from organizations/institutions that address clinical and translational medical issues in the diagnosis and/or management of HIV infection and its consequences in older persons. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-09-018, that encourages applications under the Small Research Grant (R03) mechanism and PA-09-017,that encourages applications under the Research Project Grant (R01) 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.
