Purpose. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) by the National Institute on Drug Abuse seeks to facilitate the entry of both newly independent and early career investigators to the area of drug abuse research on HIV/AIDS.

The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology.
Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) award mechanism.
