The over-arching goal of this National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs with the goal of advancing the priorities outlined in the Office of AIDS Research (OAR) Annual Strategic Plan and the research program priorities of the NIMH Division of AIDS Research (DAR). Programs developed through this FOA should advance the research training objectives and strategies of the Training, Infrastructure and Capacity Building Area of Emphasis from the NIH Office on AIDS Research (OAR) Strategic Plan.

Specifically, the NIMH is interested in the development of research education programs that have a thematic concentration in behavioral science research priorities (e.g., HIV continuum of care; health disparities mechanisms and treatments; implementation/operations research) and/or HIV neuroscience research themes (e.g., HIV/CNS neuropathogenesis; NeuroAIDS-informed treatments; HIV/CNS cure strategies; HIV/AIDS-related comorbidities and complications).  To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on: Research Experiences and Mentoring Activities.
