Limited Competition: Training Programs for Critical HIV Research Infrastructure for Low- and Middle-Income Country Institutions (G11)
Grant Amount: Application budgets are limited to $92,000 direct costs per year.
The overall goal of the Fogarty International Center (FIC) HIV Research Training Program is to strengthen the human capacity to contribute to the ability of institutions in eligible low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to conduct HIV-related research on the evolving HIV-related epidemics in their country and to compete independently for research funding. See http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups for the countries defined as low-and middle-income.
The Fogarty HIV Research Training Program encourages applications under three different Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs). This FOA (G11) encourages applications from U.S. institutions to support training to develop and strengthen leadership and expertise in six specific research infrastructure areas at an LMIC institution with which the U.S. applicant institution has on-going HIV research collaborations. This training is expected to strengthen the HIV research capacity of the specified LMIC institution. Applicants interested in other areas of scientific research training should consult the D71, PAR-13-214 and D43, PAR-13-126 FOAs.
This FOA under the Fogarty HIV Research Training Program can only support training related to technical expertise, administration and financial management in these six areas:
dedicated research offices; offices of research integrity; ethics committees for protection of human subjects; committees for animal care and use in research; health sciences libraries (library and information science); and information and communications technology systems (ICT) - (expertise to keep these systems up to date and functioning)
