Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Long-Term Neurocognitive Consequences of COVID-19 in Individuals Living with HIV and Substance Use Disorders

This notice applies to due dates on or after May 7, 2021 and subsequent receipt dates through September 7, 2024.

Research Objectives:

NIDA is interested in receiving research applications focusing on studying the long-term neurocognitive consequences of the COVID-19/HIV/SUDs syndemic.

This NOSI encourages, but is not limited to, research applications in the following areas:

  1. Long-term neurocognitive effects of HIV/COVID-19/SUDs. Basic science studies to explore changes in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, biochemistry, learning and behavior.
  2. Clinical studies to evaluate cognitive, behavioral, neuropsychiatric, neuro-therapeutic outcomes, etc. Staging and categorizing of cognitive dysfunction. Differentiation between HAND and COVID-19 neurocognitive impairment in individuals with and without SUDs. Validation of neurocognitive scales for HAND and COVI-19 neurocognitive impairment.
  3. Neurocognitive studies in individuals with HIV/COVID-19/SUDs classified by age/gender/race/socioeconomic status/drug of choice use/ART regime/HCV status/other co-morbidities/criminal justice involvement, etc.
  4. Therapeutic strategies for such neurocognitive dysfunction in the context of HIV. Effectiveness of NMDA receptor antagonists, Anticholinergics, B12 supplements, Thiamine, SSRI’s, Benzodiazepines, Antipsychotics, etc., and its interactions with ART and SUDs. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Mindfulness; Meditation; Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and others.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Medical Consequences of Smoking and Vaping Drugs of Abuse in Individuals with HIV and COVID-19

This notice applies to due dates on or after May 5, 2021 and subsequent receipt dates through September 7, 2024.

Research Objectives: NIDA is interested in receiving research applications focusing on individuals with HIV who smoke or vape marijuana, tobacco, cocaine and/or methamphetamine to determine the long-term effects of their use among individuals with HIV and COVID-19.

Research Areas:

The risks that smoking and/or vaping tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, and/or methamphetamine may have on acquiring the SARS-CoV2 infection in individuals with HIV.

The medical consequences, co-morbidity, and complications of SARS-CoV2 infection affecting cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, hematological, immunological, CNS and PNS systems in HIV individuals who smoke and/or vape tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, and/or methamphetamine.

Defining mechanisms by which substance use and HIV interact to increase susceptibility to severe COVID-19 affecting cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, hematological, immunological, CNS and PNS morbidity.

Utilization of large database- Electronic Health Records – strategies for retrospective and platform based prospective studies, cross analyses, and real-time health delivery and critical health-related decisions in emergency medicine settings.

Investigators are encouraged to make use of existing data sets and resources.

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Administrative Supplements for the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program to Address COVID-19 Public Health Needs

Applications will be accepted immediately and on a rolling basis through August 16, 2024 by 5:00 PM local time.

The parent award must be active when the supplement application is submitted (e.g. within the originally reviewed and approved project period). The research proposed in the supplement should be requested for one year and should be accomplished within the currently approved project period for the existing parent award.

The project period will generally be limited to 1 year. Project periods up to 2 years will be considered only with strong justification.

The NCATS may consider on a case-by-case basis a no-cost extension for the supplement of up to an additional year at the conclusion of the first year, provided it is well justified and within the remaining parent project period.
