The DC and Emory CFARs are excited to announce the NIH has opened the 2023 Adelante RFA.
- Concept proposal due 11/10/2022
- Invited applications due 02/21/2023
- Project period is 06/01/2023 to 05/31/2025
Adelante - meaning forward or onward in Spanish – is funded by the NIH/NIMHD and administered through two NIH-funded Centers for AIDS Research (CFARs): District of Columbia and Emory University. Through this program, the NIH strives to promote the mentored development of early-career investigators who focus on HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care in Latina/x/o communities.
The Adelante program supports 2-year Adelante Teams consisting of a scholar (Early Stage Investigator), a CFAR-affiliated mentor, and a collaborating partner representative who is from a Community-based Organization that serves Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o populations. Adelante teams should be supportive, diverse, and interdisciplinary. Proposed research should be community-based and reflect local Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o-community needs, as identified by science and the local community.
Research proposal topics may include but are not limited to:
- Developing, testing, and implementing strategies to improve HIV testing and entry into prevention services by Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o people.
- Long-term prevention strategies specific to Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o populations for HIV-relevant coinfections and comorbid conditions across the lifespan
- Effective socio-behavioral interventions to achieve uptake of HIV prevention and treatment strategies by Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o people and reduce health disparities among the population.
- Implementation research tailored specifically for Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o populations that are designed to ensure that biomedical and other prevention and treatment strategies are initiated as soon as possible, that retention and engagement in treatment services are increased, and/or that maintenance of optimal prevention and treatment responses are achieved.
- Research that examines HIV-related health and social issues in Hispanic and/or Latina/x/o populations, such as other infectious or non-infectious conditions and substance use or mental health disorders that are clearly linked with HIV (transmission/acquisition, pathogenesis, morbidity and mortality, stigma) in sub-populations or settings with high HIV prevalence or incidence.
Applicants may request up to $100,000 in direct costs per year ($200,000 over two years) plus applicable indirect costs, not to exceed direct costs per year. This funding may be used for salaries, technical support, laboratory supplies, equipment, and research- or training-related activities including but not limited to enrollment in training classes or workshops, travel to the CFAR Mentor's institution, or travel to the research field site.
