NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Limited Competition: National NeuroAIDS Tissue Consortium (NNTC) Clinical Sites (U24)

Funding Contact(s): May Wong, Ph.D.
Funding Categories: Neural Environment

Brief Description:

This limited competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke (NINDS) solicits applications to continue the activities of the National NeuroAIDS Tissue Consortium (NNTC) Clinical Sites as previously funded under RFA-MH-08-021. The NNTC Clinical Sites collect neuromedical and neuropsychiatric data from late stage, HIV-infected subjects who have indicated a willingness to participate in organ donation. The NNTC Clinical Sites perform clinical assessments, collect brain and neurological tissues and fluids, perform neuropathological diagnosis and laboratory assessments and transfer select data generated from these activities to the NNTC central database which is maintained by the Data Coordinating Center (DCC). The mission of the NNTC is to maintain a research resource that supports studies on the pathophysiology of nervous system complications of HIV infection in the current era of anti-retroviral therapy. The Clinical Sites work cooperatively with the DCC to provide the clinical data and specimen resources to research investigators. Competitive applications for the NNTC DCC are being sought under a separate but related companion FOA (RFA-MH-13-071).
