Description: This Limited Competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to continue the activities of the National NeuroAIDS Tissue Consortium (NNTC) Clinical Sites as previously funded under RFA-MH-13-070. The NNTC Clinical Sites will function as part of the NNTC, a national resource that provides clinical data and biological specimens to NeuroAIDS investigators interested in conducting research toward a cure of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1) infection from the central nervous system (CNS), and research on the neuropathogenesis of HIV-1 induced CNS and peripheral nervous system (PNS) dysfunction in the context of anti-retroviral therapy (ART). The NNTC Clinical Sites collect neuromedical and neuropsychiatric data from late stage, HIV-1 infected subjects who have indicated a willingness to participate in organ donation. The NNTC Clinical Sites are responsible for the following: 1) recruitment, clinical assessment and follow-up of the late-stage NNTC cohort; and 2) collection, maintenance and distribution of specimen resources. All data generated from these activities are transferred to the NNTC Data Coordinating Center (DCC). The NNTC Clinical Sites work cooperatively with the DCC to provide the clinical data and specimen resources to research investigators. A limited competition for the NNTC DCC is being sought under a separate but related companion FOA (RFA-MH-18-251).
