Article Title


"Conclusions: The counterbalancing impact of sexual distancing and clinical service interruption depends on the infection and the extent and durability of these COVID-related changes. If sexual behavior rebounds while service interruption persists, we project an excess of hundreds of HIV cases and thousands of STI cases just among Atlanta MSM over the next 5 years. Immediate action to limit the impact of service interruptions is needed to address the indirect effects of the global COVID pandemic on the HIV/STI epidemic."

Research Volunteers Sought: People living with COVID-19

The ACTIV-2/A5401 ADAPT treatment study for COVID positive individuals is now open and enrolling at the Ponce Center. The study is testing different medicines to see if the medicines: Are safe for those who need them; can help people get better faster; can get rid of the virus; can help keep oxygen levels up; can keep people from getting sicker; can prevent people from having to go to the hospital.

The CFAR Developmental Core provides two types of small grant funding, both on a rolling basis.


 

OPPORTUNITY AWARDS
Are you facing an obstacle to your HIV research productivity that small but crucial resources would help? Opportunity Awards provide funding that cannot easily or immediately be obtained through other mechanisms.

Funds are intended to be used to:
• Enable a new NIH application that is expected to be submitted within the next 12 months
• Gather data needed for a scored NIH application that is currently being revised for resubmission
• Reduce obstacles encountered during a current NIH-funded research project

Read More About Opportunity Awards

DATA AWARDS
Would funding to help offset the cost of analytic support, training, or assistance from the CFAR Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core be useful to you? How about funds to access, extract, and clean data available through the CFAR Clinical Research Core's HIV Disease Registry?

Funds are available to gather/analyze data for one or more of three purposes:
• For inclusion in a publication that is being prepared for submission to a peer-reviewed journal within six months of receiving the final data cut / analytic assistance;
• To conduct unfunded research in preparation for the development of a new or resubmission funding application that will be submitted within 12 months of receiving the final data cut / analytic assistance,
• Supplementary data for a study that is currently funded by the CFAR or NIH, but lacks budgeted funds to support the described data need.
