Funding Opportunity Announcement: Evaluation of a New Specimen Biorepository Utility Providing Access to External Investigators to Pedigreed Specimens for Collaborative Research with the DAIDS ACTG Network

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

The National Institutes of Health/Division of AIDS (NIH/DAIDS) and the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) Network would like to increase non-network and international DAIDS Network investigator access to stored specimens available at the ACTG Biomedical Research Institute (BRI) repository in Rockville, Maryland to encourage the use of banked specimens for new laboratory based scientific proposals. Specimen types stored at the BRI repository include blood, serum, plasma, sputum, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), tissue, and other body fluids such as cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), semen, endocervical and cervicovaginal lavage fluid, many of which are now available for testing by external investigators. Public access to this specimen repository is available at the Specimen Repository website www.specimenrepository.org.
