Description:

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) seeks
applications for cross-national and international multidisciplinary research
on the intersection of alcohol consumption and the HIV epidemic.
Investigators representing a broad array of academic disciplines and engaged
in cross-cutting fields of science are encouraged to consider designing
studies that utilize rigorous methodologies from epidemiological, biomedical,
and behavioral research traditions. Special emphasis areas include: the
prevention and treatment of HIV and other blood-borne infections in sexually
active populations of alcohol users; the clinical course and consequences of
HIV and related health conditions as these are affected by alcohol use;
adherence to HIV/AIDS therapy and medication regimes as these are affected by
alcohol use; the causes and consequences of differences in HIV-associated
risks, morbidity, and mortality between men and women, adults and
adolescents, and majority and minority populations who consume alcohol at
various levels; the effectiveness of alcohol treatment as a means of lowering
the risk that currently infected individuals will spread the HIV virus to
others; and the design, development, and evaluation of prevention
interventions to reduce the impact of alcohol use and sex-related risk
behaviors on the primary and secondary transmission of HIV and other
infectious diseases.

Researchers are encouraged to utilize integrative, multi-method approaches in
their study designs. Examples of newer technologies that may be employed
include, but are not limited to, automated techniques for monitoring
medications adherence, computer assisted survey administration, geospatial
coding of alcohol-related events, econometric methods of assessing cost-
effectiveness and burden of illness, and creative use of existing data
resources to improve medical informatics. Other applications may focus on
low cost, low technology, but clinically effective methods for improving the
delivery of prevention or medical care, thereby enhancing the availability of
these services to low income patients and the exportability of these services
these improvements to resource-poor societies.

Established researchers are urged to recruit new, domestic and foreign
researchers to work on their projects, to provide training and mentoring to
help achieve their project's specific aims, and to nurture the career
development and independence of new researchers.
