On July 7, the NIH issued a Notice of Intent to Publish (NOT-OD-21-156) a Research Opportunity Announcement (ROA) to establish the AIM-AHEAD Coordinating Center (A-CC). The official announcement will be released on or around Tuesday, July 13. Interested applicants are encouraged to read the notice and check the program website for updates on July 13.
The AIM-AHEAD program expects the A-CC to include experts from diverse social, cultural, economic, academic, and industrial backgrounds and communities. NIH is particularly interested in applications led by institutions and organizations that have a core mission to serve minorities and other under-represented groups impacted by health disparities.
