Infrastructure Development Training Programs for Critical HIV Research at Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions (G11 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

The overall goal of the Fogarty HIV Research Training (HIVRT) Program is to strengthen the scientific capacity of institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) by enhancing the functional resources required to conduct HIV research on the evolving HIV epidemic in their countries.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages collaborative applications from U.S. and LMIC institutions to develop training programs to achieve technical, administrative, and financial management expertise required for one of several research infrastructure support functions considered critical to a successful high-quality research environment. These are: a) research administration and management, b) research integrity oversight, c) ethical review of research for the protection of human subjects, d) laboratory animal welfare oversight, e) advanced laboratory instrument services, f) health sciences library and information services, g) information and communications technology systems (ICT) for research, h) biostatistics and data analysis, i) technology transfer and intellectual property protection, j) harassment and discrimination policy and prevention and k) any area not mentioned above that justifiably will contribute to enhancing Institutional services that can support research activities.

Training programs to support research infrastructure will maximize previous investments, further strengthen the LMIC institution’s research capabilities, and potentially provide more accessible research infrastructure training opportunities to others at Institutions in their own country and in other LMICs.
