Avenir Award Program for Research on Substance Abuse and HIV/AIDS (DP2)
Grant Amount: NIDA intends to commit $1.5M in each fiscal year (FY 2015-2017) to fund 2-3 awards.
Avenir means future in French, and this award looks toward the future by supporting early stage investigators proposing highly innovative studies at the nexus of substance abuse and HIV/AIDS. This award is designed to support creative individuals who wish to pursue innovative research approaches for substance using populations with or at risk for HIV/AIDS. Research that may lead to improved preventive interventions, improved therapies and/or long term retention in care or implementation strategies, and ultimately, eradication of HIV. The award will support those in an early stage of their career who may lack the preliminary data required for an R01 grant, but who propose high impact research and who show promise of being tomorrow's leaders in the field.
Through the Avant-Garde Award Program for HIV/AIDS Research (DP1), NIDA has supported highly innovative researchers proposing potentially transformative research. While open to investigators at all career stages, the Avant-Garde Award has not attracted many early stage investigators. Therefore, the Avenir award is designed to complement the Avant-Garde award by focusing on early stage investigators. Avenir applicants may propose research in any area of high priority HIV/AIDS research that has the potential to open new areas of HIV/AIDS research and/or lead to new avenues for treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS among substance abusers.
Avenir awardees are required to commit at least 25% of their research effort to activities supported by the Avenir award.
