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 Small Research Grant (R03) applications that address clinical and translational medical issues in the diagnosis and/or management of HIV infection and its consequences in older persons. The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology.The R03 is intended to support small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanism and runs in parallel with FOAs of identical scientific scope, PA-09-019, that solicits applications under the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) mechanism and PA-09-017, that solicits 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.
